Re: BEER RUN - The Corruption of a Cruiser

Man, the lighted tank & cold beer sign make me want to followed this bike to it's favorite watering hole. This a classic pub crawler for sure.

Beware of the Savannah cops: they might cite you for open container(s) and DWI (Driving Wicked Innovator).

Thanks Jake. I didn't see the steering coming either. I just happened to find it at a yard sale Saturday for $2 along with an antique chandelier holder. Once I got back to the house and looked at the bike, I knew I had to use it.

I am in Philly now. I'll PM you.

Re: BEER RUN - The Corruption of a Cruiser

The 5 liter keg finally arrived. I will update this thread or my build when I have time to add it to the bike.

I am looking forward to riding BEER RUN this weekend.

What a blast it has been to be part of this.

Re: BEER RUN - The Corruption of a Cruiser

Had a fun ride on BEER RUN today. Showed it off to some friends that hadn't seen it yet and took some photo ops in front of some bars.
It was a hit with young and old. A few people made me stop so that they could take pictures of it. The kids loved the fins and the horn.



My buddy let me bring it inside of his Your Pie pizza joint while I enjoyed a Thai Pie and a Dogfish Head Namaste beer. I had to stop eating a few times to talk with tourists and let them take photos.

You can't help but smile when you see this bike!! Mission accomplished!!

Kingfish,

You just won the highest praise you could receive; recognition from the general public.

BTW: The smile on your face riding Beer Run is priceless (that equates to (5) 5 liter keg rating).

Congrats on the coolest beer bike.

Please tell me it's super noisy when it rides, that would make me so happy. :mrgreen:
The cans aren't noisy at all. The only thing that is noisy is the constant squeak of the 1960s pedals. I just need to oil them up a bit.

Hey 2dawgs, thanks for the 5 liter bonus karma. It must have helped put me into double digits because someone gave me one more vote. It was a blast getting the attention from the tourists and locals today, but it is hard to describe how cool it is to get cred from fellow ratters since this was my first build.

Just in time for the Savannah Craft Brew Fest that happens this weekend, I finished the RRB BO #6 Bonus Brew Trophies.
Some of you may remember the commemorative brews that I did for my BEER RUN entry and how I promised to do the same for the top three winners.
Well, my graphics were extremely basic and it turns out that the winner (petrohead) is a graphic designer. He came up with an awesome label theme that includes a bike chain border and a skiptooth chainring on the neck label.

Without further ado, let me present the triple threatBuild Off 6 brews from Rat Rod Bikes Brewery (Kingfish Bottling Co).

Rat Racer 6 - Rusty Leather Lager
Speed Demon - Vintage Eve-Ale (ginger ale)
Frightliner - Doppelbock Jet Fuel




Also since I own the Kingfish Bottling Co, we produced a BEER RUN - Uncanny Rat Stout
