Talk about all things Rat Rod Bikes.
Exactly, or at least that's my take on it. Execution is everything. Incredible, over the top ideas are great, but only if you can pull them off well. But if it comes down to it, I'll pick simple but done well over crazy done halfassed.
+1 on imagination, too, but that's where I run short sometimes (too much engineer, not enough artist sometimes), but that's where I look for some sort of inspiration.

really cool comp man. thanks for taking the time to do this. now i can see how the builds have progressed from year to year. peatbog and expjawa hit the nail on the head. car shows are judged the same way. clean and well executed always wins the day. you can be as radical as you want, but you'd better have all your i's dotted and t's crossed. lol. this is a great forum.

Thank you, yoothgeye, for your efforts in presenting this thread to us all – those “Builds” have set a very high standard indeed!
Killer cool ride – a kinetic sculptural masterpiece in black and chrome; well done, bighit.
Rat Rodding, is, if anything, the passionate act of creating something functional from an ostensible pile of rubble.

I re-read my build thread from the first build off, it brought back a lot of good memories...
I miss chatting with all those guys...
This forum has always been an amazing resource, and a wealth of ideas, info and advice.
Thank you Steve.
I noticed for whatever reason the video in my build thread isn't working. Here it is again for anyone who was wondering...
