    Here's one I finished a few days ago. It's a 1936 Shelby built Hiawatha with a 66cc motor. I had some crusty odds and ends parts laying around and decided to put them to use.

    Dave...I built a couple of bikes about ten years ago when the Chinese two strokes first came out and decided to call them Wheezers. I had one of the decals left over so I used it on this one. BTW thanks for the heads up on "no IMG's"

    That's great.I was thinking about doing the same thing but I thought it might look too weird.

    Did you use that paint that makes things look rusty?

    Thanks guys.
    Stink Bike......Some of it is natural rust (patina) and some is paint (Rusteolium Textured Rustic Umber).
