Talk about all things Rat Rod Bikes.
41, engaged, a four year old son. As my sig says, started in the summer of 1980, after falling in love with a rusty '56 Schwinn Corvette, eventually named "Old Faithful". I still have him, and my interest in the hobby has cycled (lol) up and down. Hit a high point in '05, when I was introduced to ebay, and bought a lot of 54 vintage bikes! It's at a lull right now, being backed up on home improvement projects, keeping old beater vehicles running, and endless yard work! But, at least I can still participate here virtually! -Adam
Dragging home rusty old bikes since 1980!
35 with two wee ones, boy is almost 4 and girl is 12. Always Been into bikes, pretty much always had a couple of bike projects around. It all kicked off with a Huffy Pro Thunder around 80/81, transfered all the parts over to a yellow and chrome Redline bmx frame/fork and bars that I picked up, that was an awesome bike.
If your psycho and you know it clap your hands! (That's your cue)
I'm newly 25...[x2= 50] still young enough to pop a wheelie, power slide and jump the curb! ..but old enough to have health insurance and enough sick days to cover it!
NO Its NOT a schwinn, does NOT fit, look like, sound like, feel like, NOT similar, does NOT fit a SCHWINN!
I'm 14, i first got into this years ago, when we picked a colson out of a farm, and i saw a stingray and i loved them, i have 5 rays/fastbacks and 1 lemon peeler, a repop schwinn, a huffy rat, a murray, dayton, and finally a varsity, and more and more to come, ive been riding since i can remember. tons of BMX's and MTB's, only the ones from the dump, and the last is a schwinn trike with the 3-speed, i think a town and country.
It's better to burn out, than fade away.
53 soon to be 54. Been riding since I was about 4 or so. Last 6 years riding a Sirrus street bike and my wife always shakes her head when I put on my Sponge Bob socks! Cracks me up. Just got the bug to try something different and found RRB. In the process of changing from one hobby, RC scale 4x4 trucks, to this new one. Plan to build and paint to match a stretch for me and a mini chopper for my grandson.
R/C scalers! Cool, that's an awesome hobby. I subscribe to some scale R/C 4x4 channels on youtube so that I can Oooo and Ahhhh everytime they build something new. I like R/C rock crawling, but never had the money to go into it seriously.

Depends on when you are reading this. If it's 2 months from now I'm 50. I'm retired so I guess that automatically makes me old. I now get stuff from the AARP in the mail. Being a Father of 1 and Grand-Father of 3 tends to age you quickly but I hang out with people like Dangratsdan who keep me feeling young.
I'm 40, no kids. I love all kinds of bikes, I just got a 'cross bike to commute on, rode it three times and came up with tendinitis in my ankle. No more ride. Build instead I guess.
Do not hope for an easy life, hope for the strength to endure a hard one.
31 and have thwarted the knot thus far. Grew up in marin with some of the original mtn bikers. Rode through college, took a few years off, then the bike bug bit again hard a few years ago.
