So, this is my latest build called “The Glori-Rat” because she’s a Glorified Rat-bike (more than just flat black and basic) that’s just meant to be ridden. I had a great time building her because I did whatever I wanted to based off of what I saw in my head. Most everything I either hand-made and home-built or scrounged up. It sounds great and rides tight! She just went off with her new owner last night, and I’m sure Ian will treat her right and have a blast!!
I made the seat, battery-box and sissy bar/backrest from scratch, and used the A/C cylinder from out of my Datsun pickup to hide the electronics and fuse relay. I gave her fresh bearings, oil and seals, new chain, tires, and brake pads, and rebuilt the carbs. I gave the tank, fender and parts of the frame a “riveted” look for a more aggressive impression…I think it worked!
