Hey everyone. My name is Chris and I'm a very good friend of Donnie. Donnie unfortunately passed away on Tuesday August 13th 2019. I just want everyone to know that Donnie was a huge fan of Rat Rod Bikes and loved all of the work, craftsmanship, and effort put forth by all of you. He lived for his bicycles and in his last days what bothered him most was the fact that he was not healthy enough to complete his build for the current competition. I thank you all for your thoughts and keep cranking out those beautiful bikes, for I know that Donnie is looking down waiting to see who wins.
