    Sweet Rickster! Tough luck on the bum pedal. That color combo and white walls reminds me of an 80's lowrider! ;) Those forks are wicked, I dig.

    Hey Rickster, I wanna see the metal seat on that thing. I think it would look better than the black imo.

    Take the crank and set the stuck part in a vice and loosen it that way.

    Hey Rick I was on Woodward last night too. I was riding my Ratty Racer project. Sorry we missed each other. I rode from 9mile up to Normandy (just north of Dugans) and back. I saw your dads buddies car. I think it started out as a Nash. 8)

    Oh yeah guys, she held up good tonight :D

    I rode from my house 2 Woodward and 12 mile, up to 15 mile back down Woodward to 9 mile took Woodward over 2 john r, and that home.. That made tonights ride about 30 miles! :D I also rode around earlier and to my buddy Derek's dads.

    oh and the left rear axle nut was loose, i rode from 13 mile to 9 mile with one axle nut holding the rear wheel on, she held up DANG good tonight, i beat the piss out of it, skidding at every stop, riding as fast as i could.. she held up I'm so proud of myself aha.

    Dang, that's quite a long ride, especially on a rat. ;) I rode 22 miles once last year on my road bike and I was tired. Way to go and the rat held tight too for ya. Nice work! That thing is totally a chick magnet, nice color choice bro!
