    So here she is, the lady rat,"SPITZEL". She in a 1950/60's model Union cylcle co. girls bike.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D I was extremely happy with how the bike turned out. It was given to me for free by a man at my church. He said that if we picked it up that we could have it. I wanted it to look simular to a woody wagon. I thank my grandfather for helping supply me with parts and for giving me some great ideas!!!!!!!!! :mrgreen:

    That's another nice bike that I didn't see coming. Turned out great. I love the well fitted frame insert.

    Thanks for all the great comments guys, i thought of the deside myself. i had never done a woody style bike before so i thought i would give it a shot. i added some rat touches by puting some wear spots on the paint and by and by putting some stripes on the chain gaurd. i also kept some rust on the handle bars for an extra rat look. i hope to take this with all my other bikes to the world of wheels in atlanta next year so look for me and you can see the spitzel in person!!!!! :D
