Here is my entry for the build. Its an older Montgomery Ward's balloon tire bike. I really dont know how old this thing is. From everything I've seen so far, i guess it was made around maybe the 30's or 40's. This is definitely the oldest bike I own right now. The name has nothing to do with the actual bike, i just wanted to name it something retro... so this is (insert the hero death metal music, and the monstertruck show announcer voice over) THE IRON GHOST! The bike wasn't in the worst condition it could have been when i got my hands on it. It had been sitting for a long time, and there was a ton of grime and rust on it. I picked it up at a salvage yard for 30 bucks. Someone had painted the entire bike with house paint. Everything but the handlebars and the tires had this weird tan paint job. But I've been working on it here and there this month, so I will post some progress pictures soon. The first thing I thought when I saw this bike was rat rod! . This is my first rat rod style bike too, so this will be interesting.
