    Hey RatRod, that ratfink is the bike that got me started in all this. I saw one in a bike store window in San Francisco a few years back and flipped out. I'm not a 10 speed guy or mountain biker so that bike just sorta sang to me. Shame you got rid of yours!

    My '08 Sparker in Satin Grey :) I really like the Hellbilly and the Straight 8 though! I wish I lived in the States so I could've gotten one of those. We get a very limited range of Electras here.

    ^^^ Your Straight 8 is sweet. I almost got one but fell for the Rockabilly. Apes look and feel great on those frames, don't they? Is that a Townie frame bag? Also, I've been wanting a headlight, what is that one? Thanks.

    Thanks. The outlaw ape hangers are perfect. I stepped up to the standard ape hangers at first but they were too mild for me. It's actually really comfortable though nobody believes me until they try them. The bag was actually sold as a tank bag. It was meant to look like a gas tank. The headlight is home made. It was a 6v incandescent security light out of a grocery store that I converted to LED. The tail lights are from Advance Auto Parts. They are trailers lights that are converted to LED too.

    I know, I just looked. But as I say, you can't put a price tag on fun!
