    RatFink Supreme

    The curved fender braces really set this off and the chainguard ties it all together. Very Nice.

    Ratcumbent

    There is no telling when that might be but I will in the build thread. Look at the bright side, I finished this project Friday and brought home a new one on Saturday. A 1966 Hillman Super Minx. And if you go on Facebook and look up Rat Fink, you will see that it is todays car of the day...

    Ratcumbent

    Today, I had a wild thought to use the seat off my other Easy Racer for a photo shoot. Its only on there temporarily. As you know my custom seat was a fail and the person who I was going to get a custom fairing from to resemble a bubble top has been out of contact. I do not know if either lost...

    We are fine, the air is still horrible. The family that owns the upholstery shop has been evacuated so the seat will not be done. The ratcumbent will not be finished by the deadline without a seat.

    We are safe and Im pretty sure Zzipper designs was consumed by fire. 5 coworkers and the owners of the Santa Cruz boardwalk have lost their homes and the Swanton Pacific Railroad was consumed. I wont be doing any cycling or even working in the garage any time soon. The 2020 Apocalypse...

    Sorry, I wont be finishing on time. We are now on evacuation warning notice and packed up if it happens. My brothers house burned and its coming this way at zero containment. Im not counting on the seat to be done with the chaos going on here. Maybe another time for me

    Just a normal light, you cant see the eye at all when it is on. That part of the garage is buried for the week, we are getting our back yard done this week and the contractors need space. I will get a pic of it when I can get to it again

    BO15 Ratcumbent

    Well, its my 2016 build all over again. In 2016, I took my frame and a bunch of parts to a powder coater to be done in black and transparent gold. All the black parts came back black but all the gold parts came back safety yellow. A few of the parts were bead blaster and sparay painted a...

    I see the gasser in it for sure and really dig the paint job. I cant paint a simple small part for mine. That is also my favorite chainring. My only question is does it wheelie really easy from sitting so far back?
