1. I wanted to give everybody a heads up on a change that I'm going to make for folks who want to use the For Sale section of the forum.

    The forum has been running strong for almost 11 years now and I (along with our awesome moderators) have tried to keep things running smooth and trouble free during that time. I'm thankful for everyone who has helped make this a great community to participate in.

    As you can imagine, there are some expenses that are involved in maintaining a site like this and I've tried my best to keep from passing that expense onto the user over the years. The forum will always be a free resource for people to communicate, learn and share.

    In order to offset some of the expenses that the site creates, I'm going to be changing the Gold Membership upgrade on the forum. Starting on April 1, 2017 the current "Gold Member" upgrade will be renamed "Pro Member" and this $20 annual upgrade will be required for posting items in the For Sale section. All members and visitors will still be able to view the For Sale section for free, but a Pro Membership upgrade of $20/year will be required for listing items in that section for sale. Current Gold Members will be converted to Pro Members and will have access to listing items for sale until their current upgrade expires.

    http://www.ratrodbikes.com/forum/index.php?account/upgrades

    Thank you for your understanding and I will give further updates as the upgrade date approaches.

    Steve

    I got a little bit done today. Had to work outside in the cold since I didn't feel like lugging this 75# bike back into the basement. I am cleaning up the original rack to use for day time riding when I don't need the battery. Gonna paint it to match the rest of the bike. I also decided that the stick shifter I was going to use for the front drum brake won't work. Now I need to find a brake handle I like.

    It's been awefully quiet from the Georgia side of this build off for a while. Did the snow scare you off?

    Almost. I am painting the original rack to match the bike for day riding so I don't have to lug the 12v gel cell battery around. And I will get my tail light modified tonight in my down time at work. I should have it done by this weekend.

    Took advantage of the beautiful day to go for a ride and snap a few more pics while the paint was drying on the rack.

    Got my day time rack done. I'll get it mounted tomorrow and snap a few pics with it on.

    Just need to mount my tail light and finish up my wiring and I can call The Double Nickle Killer done.

    Let me know when you get done, Dubby Nicky, and we can throw it to the people for their decision.
