    This doesnt look like a rat rod to me. If you have this kind of talent you need to be on the NAHBS site. This took serious planning and superb craftsmanship.

    AWESOME BIKE SIR

    ahah NAHBS is aiming a bit high for a first , but thanks you for the comment:thumbsup:
    all tho it does not look like a typical rat , its pretty much built with the same mentality , with mostly stuff i have at hand and redneck techniques. :crazy:
    besides , noting says it need to be a rat :wink1:

    Great looking bike and your craftsmen ship is spot on . Looks like it could be a high end production bike . i can just imagine the business you cou get doing home repairs in your neighborhood on that bike . You killed it

    I totally love this bike! I am very impressed with your frame design and overall finished bike. This is one of the nicest, most thought out and imaginative bikes ever built on this site. Congrats! I've said it before, but you already have one of my votes. :113:

    You know, I'm curious.
    The pegs on the back for hauling longer stuff, can you hook bungee straps to them to keep it stable?

    around them and the stays yes , plenty of clearance for passing the straps, i can hook the straps at the ends of the peg also .
    in the front i can strap trought the head tube in the open triangle :)
    the pegs are about 3or 4'' long , but i can't really haul much more than 2'' wide things on each sides or else i have to pedal like a monkey :giggle:
