    For your consideration in MBBO#5 Class 2, Slow Roll. I wanted to use as many reclaimed parts as possible, and modify or build as much as possible.

    It led to me down an interesting path, where I created a lot of my own problems. http://www.ratrodbikes.com/forum/in...-class-2-slow-roll.100071/page-8#post-1019519

    Hope you enjoy the build.

    Necessity is the mother of invention. In your case, some of your 'necessities' to create your invention, were real 'mothers'..! :21:

    Just kidding! Love the creativity in this build, and the rat-isfaction that it brings! Well done!

    Ha, I got an education. I used as many salvaged parts as possible. Finding chrome rims to stay era correct added a lot of time and trouble. I'm sticking to aluminum hoops.
