stinkpot - nope, CRODHOPPER Here is the bike I will be using. The front forks and rim are trashed, fenders not so hot either (chop!). Frame looks cool brown and black spotty patina - may paint, not sure. Seat post was welded in! I do not know what type of bike it is, bought for $5 at flea market. It came apart real easy, all bearings, parts still good, and all welds still tight! My guess is a late 70's model cheap-o bike but I have no clue. If you have a guess I'd love to know! Started looking for other parts to use and tried a dry run - just goofing around really - have not decided what direction to take this thing, but I want it to "STINK" of rat rod, so I'm going for the old nasty look on mine I think! "Stinkpot" is actually a type of mud turtle found here in TX., it's very rare to see one, and me and my boys found one the other day - not knowing what is was we found out it was called a Stinkpot - so my rat rod bike took that name - me and my sons have anew project! It may be ugly and slow when It's all said and done - but it'll be "rare" (and beautiful to me) :mrgreen: [/img] Can't wait to see progress on your bikes! Fun Stuff! -T.
