○〇◯ Holeshot ◯〇○
I was almost going to build a WWI inspired Cycle Truck this year, but then I scored a Silver King Hextube and a Trek Rail CNC so my decision was tougher. I have decided to go with the Trek Rail CNC build. It's just so different from any other frame I have ever owned. I am going to call this build ○〇◯ Holeshot ◯〇○

What is really cool about this bike is that it is in this Cruisers book that I got for finishing 2nd in Build Off 8 with Firewing.

This bike is the front one on the roof of this car from one of the Freakbike Militia rides. I tried tracking down the second one, but it was long gone.

There is a ton of coolness in this frame, but I hate most of the parts on it. The seat has to go along with the guard and obviously the tires. Here it is just after I unpacked it.

I have had these Spoiler chopper springer forks for over 5 years and I keep trying them on most bikes I have. They just haven't felt right until I slid them onto the Rail frame.

The geometry isn't perfect, but it is workable. I like how it jacks it up enough to that the chainstays are close to parallel to the ground.

I love those tires, not on that bike, more like on one of mine.

As usual, I expect great things.

Got the fork on and tested with a 26" skinny slick up front. That is a 24x3 rear
