    Here it is, started out with what was believed to be a Snyder built 1941 Rollfast.
    Add a modern Huffy rear clip, a battery powered Fender micro amp and a guitar rack.

    What an incredibly creative and "rockin" build brother!!!
    Who else would or could build a freaking tanklifier for their bike!!!!???
    Thanks for bringing your skills and fun to the show.
    And it's not just cool because of the novelty of it. Naw man, this was a well thought out and executed stretch build that looks killer!!
    BRAVO MAN!!!
