    I invite you to visit my Build thread for more details and rationale regarding the outcome of this ‘34 Schwinn The World project. The goal was to recreate a somewhat 30’s period correct deluxe bike, but retain the patina and the ratty look of the bike as originally found.
    The guy I got it from was helping a farmer clean out buildings. It was going to be thrown out by the farmer. The younger guy asked for it in partial payment for his labor. He ended up placing it on Facebook Marketplace, in turn I scooped it up.

    The tank construction and RaT-ina and use of the old iron fabric cord are my favorite parts of this multi-RaT-cited build!

    My favorite build of yours to date (parrot not-with-standing ;) ). And the tires are awesome on there, btw. :thumbsup:

    Interesting, I posted the “LTMR” final photo on Facebook on the Old Bikes Club page and the Rat Rod Bikes page, with different responses. Go figure...

    Machine Age Victim’s Award for Mechanical Excellence, don’t think I can afford the shop rates so I’ll stick with doing my own work. I will treasure this recognition for ever. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
