finaly after months of procrastination and tinkerin',( or should I say fighting parts thats just refused to co-operate ) this bike has finally come together and actully still within my original theme... a newsboy bike though not quite what I had originally thought up but what the hey! This turned out to be a 2 day crunch build, the frame was rust and 3 layers of peeling pain yesterday and today a good rider that I like a lot. Before and after complete with a satchel of the Rat Rod Bikes printable flyers ( I past out a few today on my ride / picture taking trip ) talk about doing things quick , I didn't ever do anything to mount the tank plate so...I tied it on with burlap strands from the potato sack I made the satchel from :lol: the things you can do with burlap sacks are endless :?: just another shot I took on the ride A big congrats to all who finnished , so many great bikes resurected in this build off...you all are a group of tallented builders and I know that I too will have a problem figuring out which one are tops !!!!!
