    Im throwing my hat into the ring. I got tooo many other projects I should be doing, but this will be motivation to get my Colson steer from the rear tandem up and going.
    Frank Lloyd Rat will be a Frank Lloyd Wright inspired bike.
    Here is what Im starting with.

    If a name alone could win the competition, I would all ready give you the crown. I expect some sweet FLW design in this puppy! (The frame is a pretty great starting point!)

    Great bike, and that name would be the phonetic spelling in some parts of the South.

    Seriously, you should add some more tubes to that frame. :D Holy Cow!, that must have been an expensive bike in it's day. The $200 worth of skiptooth chain is a nice bonus as well, this will be fun to watch.

    My first degree is in Architecture, so I've got a soft spot for this build from the jump!
