    Hi! I was reading a lot in this forum, enjoying all the amazing builds, tipps and tricks...and I love to see American Vintage Bikes, so different from what we have in Europe. But also I love to see how people all over the world have the same passion for building cruisers, rat bikes, custom bikes or what ever!

    Here my Rat Rod Cruiser, "boardtracker" frame, rust conserved wit linseed oil, a fork from a 50s motorbike, wheels and fenders from an old swedish military Kronan...rat rod understatement!

    Okay...you pretty much nailed it with that bike.

    That my friend is a true Rat Rod Bike. :wink:

    It actually looks almost like a scale model. :shock:

    You're not allowed to talk about that! :shock: :mrgreen:

    Amazing bike, is the fork heavy? (preparing to convert kilograms into pounds)

    Greetings from South Carolina!

    Nice bike. Those forks are nasty. I love'em.

    Is the frame and other parts rusted or are the parts painted like that? Because either way, it suits the bike VERY well.

    You don't have to convert...I cant tell you the exact weight. But yes, it is heavy!
    I did not care so much about weight, it is quite flat where I live...and once the baby is on speed she is unstoppable ... :lol: :lol: :lol:

    Hi to South Carolina, cool you like my bike!
    All rust on the bike is real and conserved wit cooked linseed oil. That works pretty well!

    Nice ride indeed! I always love to see one of "my" frames built up - and this one was done just right.

    Hi Basti, the frame is just awesome! Got it from you more than a year ago and enjoy riding it since then :D

    You are absolutely right with the rags! ...I always put them into water after I used them, so they don't start burning.

    and great you like my photos! and the bike.
