    Dept Store bike, $40 second hand. Stripped paint, rusted and engraved details. Only purchased new bits were the bar mounts ($12) and two star nuts for the forks ($3). It really only owes me for the hours spent.

    Thanks for looking.

    Nice custom touches on the engraving, oil can light, bottle cap topper, and your mix of old and new; rat rod embodiment!

    You made a killer rat out of this. The etched rust pinstripes are brilliant!
    Congrats
