Look like I just dragged this baby outta the junk pile. $30 Huffy Cranbrook in like new condition. I scraped, sanded and grinded the paint to bear metal and the hit it w/ muratic acid washed it and coated it w/ a peroxide / salt mix to start some good rust and while still wet I hit it w/ some red, black, green and brown primer spray paint. I then rubbed it w/ a wet rag and let dry. The tires and motor got some wood stain. I then hit it with a hammer on the tank and applied torch here and there and viola! rat bike. I built this for a drinkin buddy who said he wanted a rust bucket.
I was thinking a casing with holes in it around the air filter and a rustic look to the engine. Could you do it with paint? That way the engine would look as old as the bike. Right now its like an old chest with a new lock on it.
dude this bike is sick i've always had a thing for rat rods and this really brings it to motorbikes
Thanx. I did the paint by hitting it w a sander and a grinder, then hit it w peroxide and salt, muratic acid then I hosed it w water then while wet I added more peroxide & salt. While it was still wet I hit it w paint to give it a fresh out of the junkyard look
