Rat Rod

Just got the engine on the other day & all ready the chain came off & got stuck between the sprocket & the spokes & bent my new rim. Oh well, it's way too much fun. Off to the bike shop to buy another rim.

WOW that bike is KILLER :D Did the rims come like that (all pretty red)? How'd you paint the frame? IE did you sand it first?

You make me want a cruiser now too! I still have payments due on the first engine :( Oh well Still a super cool bike

I scuffed up the chrome rims with sand paper & then sprayed them flat red out of a can. I picked the frame out of the garbage & sanded it down to bare medal & then sprayed it flat black out of a can.

Cool

That bike needs a budwieser beer can air filter. I made one for mine you have lots of room too. I just cut up a bear can and made a filter out of it. I got a piece of foam rubber and made my air cleaner about twice as thick as the one that it came with and put oil on it. You have enough room.
