After months of work and some inconsistant posts (sorry), my first build off bike is finished. I had a blast! It was a lot of fun taking part in something that every year, I see bring so much happiness to my husband. Now I understand. Its been a lot of fun seeing all the builds progressing, and seeing all the amazing ideas from all over the globe. This is a really great community and it's been really fun being a part of it. The icing on the cake, I got a cool new bike out of it.

Awesome work Mrs Link! Clean, tight build with a good dose of rat-ification! Love the seat cover and chain ring especially. Well done, and...
Rat on! :thumbsup:

Remember, you want your very best photo to be first in line at the top of your thread. That's the one the moderator will pick for the voting thread. I personally like the red brick shot or your second to the last grass shot....both show off your cool headlight, and get a good look at the stance of your build....

Thanks, I was kind of partial to the profile picture, but now that you mention it, the brick picture does showcase the bike much better.

The bike really turned out great! I love the wheel and tire choices and really dig its compact stance. Its a Rod for sure, both Rat and Hot! Well Done!

Thanks!! I had a blast and love how it turned out. Funny story - the offset tires remind me of a purple sparkly bike I had as a little girl that my older brother butchered and put different size wheels on. I had to ride with a scooter wheel on the front hunched over for weeks before my mom finally made him change it back :giggle:

Turned out great. I really like how the truss rods and headlight work together!
Thanks! Me too! I was so nervous making decisions this whole build off but I actually love how it turned out. I learned SO much cool stuff too! I've never been the kind of girl to shy away at getting my hands dirty but I also have never built something like this before. Love learning new things.
