    The campground cruiser started off as a 1963 Schwinn Mark 5 Jaguar. It has been a blast to build this bike and be involved in the rat rod bikes build off. I had no real vision about how this bike was going to turn out. I completely made it up as I went along. I am definitely happy with the results. I hope you enjoy the final photos as I had a great time cruising Northern Arizona and taking them. She turned out to be a great rider and should serve the purpose well in the campground as well as around my town.

    Thanks to all you ratters and to ratrodbikes.com

    That shot 3 from the bottom on the red rock trail is a winner! Glad you enjoyed your first build-off.....nice work, creative ideas, tied everything together real well with your colors / design. Looking forward to seeing it this winter! Rat on!

    Looks good, some cool details in this one.

    Monsoon season is coming, try to keep it dry.

    My dad had a compass like that mounted on the dashboard of his 56 Ford F150. The thermometer was a nice touch--but the barometer pushes from nice to flat out awesome.
