    I always liked that muscle bikes started with kids making themselves, so I was going for a pig bike look with this one. Some parts are 1954 24" Schwinn frame and fork, 26" deluxe chainguard, 24' S2 wheels, 24x3" thick brick tires, and so on. The photo location is Stansbury Island on the Great Salt Lake.

    Build thread is here!

    I had a question...
    Where's your build thread?
    Then I went digging and Ah-ha! Different name...
    Kinda confusing but that's a cool bike bro.

    Great bike and build!

    I had a double take moment too until I saw the bike and remembered the thread!

    Bike turned out great! Maybe change the name on your build thread so it matches your Finished Build thread title. For those that haven't been following along.

    Muscle and rust....very Rat-isfying indeed!

    I like these two photos (your first one at the top of this Finished thread, will be the one the admins select for the Voting Thread). They show off your 'colors' better than the one at the top of your post.

    I added the original name to the thread title, and I added a link to the build thread. All good ideas!

    I always forget about stuff like that. I moved the pictures around a little. I like the dramatic shot that was the top picture, but you are right that it doesn't show it off quite as much.

    Beautiful bike on a beautiful landscape. Beautiful and tough (the bike, and I guess the landscape, too). Great job, and close to ground zero to what it’s all about. Nice work.

    Just right, with well-chosen accessories.

    I like it, it's ratty and muscly all at the same time.
