Yep, that's one 'ratty' bike...but really cool. That yellow lens on the headlight is just over the top. Love it! But...don't your knees hit the tank? :)

Congratulations, Rusty. Unique build. Thanks for sharing it with us.

Really appreciate it, there's actually a good bit of room for my knees. I added the laid back seat post for a little more room.

Very Nice! Very COOL! I Love that bike every - nasty- dirty little detail. That's about 3 days worth of thought and excitement. I have needed this. Thanks! I gotta go shovel some snow!

In France, for years, they had yellow headlamps because they were supposed to dazzle 10% less than white ones. Then one day somebody measured the output of white and yellow lamps of equal wattage; guess which sort consistently gave 10% less light output :)

Really appreciate the compliment, I'm from Louisiana, what's this snow you speak of?
Just watch national news. Wait for them to show 'Denver Colorado' and you'll see what 'snow' is. Think heavy wet white sand and how hard it would be to shovel two feet of it out of your driveway. :)
