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

    Since last year's Build Off I have picked up some cool frames and other crap to possibly use for builds. If you have followed either of my two builds, you know I do a lot of mock up to wrap my head around what to do next. To that end I am going to use this space to post photos of some of the stuff I have to work with so that I have one place to look at as I begin to think out what my Build Off 7 build will be.

    One of my ideas is to do a sidecar build or have a trailer as part of my build.
    If I do, then this will be the base for it.
    I also have a pair of 26" wheel covers.

    One of my other build ideas is a chopper trike.

    This 70s WF trike back end would be part of it. With the kids 20" Nirve Clutch frame up front.

    May even make this Elgin into a 29er with Big Apples

    I love this beehive springer . 1941 Huffman Dayton mix.

    Everyone needs a 54 Chevy hood ornament on their salt flats sidecar. Actually, this isn't the 54 Chevy ornament, but I do have one of those as well.
    EDIT: Used wings from this on Flexy

    If I build the trike, I have these Harley Whitewalls. Actually, I guess, I could use them for a side car or trailer too.

    I don't know if it will be this build or not, but I plan to someday make a banana seat or rack out of wooden water skis.
    By the way, I sold the hardware from the Cypress Garden skis for $46.

    Don't know if it fits into any of my BO ideas, but this seltzer bottle is going to make a cool tank on some bike.
    Maybe a Three Stooges bike. Nyuck Nyuck Nyuck.

    I made a very good profit on a yard sale bike yesterday, so I plan to have RRB Headbadge #007 once Steve puts it on ebay.

    Maybe the theme of my build be be James Bondish!!!

    My build may be pretty heavy, so I am exploring using one of those electric front wheels for assisitance. That is if I can find a deal. I am not paying full price!!!

    I don't think I will use this one for the BO, but I could use my 1959 Panther II
