Does it still retain it's street cred, or is it now firmly in there with OCC and West Coast Chopper bling mobikes?
Just wondering like.

persoanally would say should be in a new bike build part,

its not a classic or a rat (not even a coypu)

but its a brave build i suppose

That's it! If bling bikes like this, rat or otherwise, are going to start appearing in 100% Biker then I'm taking my pocket money elsewhere!

I want to see real people's bikes! Not psuedo rat look alikes!

FFS Nik, don't be so fcuking lazy and buy features from abroad! Go and do some bloody leg work and look for some good honest UK bikes for features!

I took the pics in Geertruidenberg the Netherlands. This bike has enough to discuss about But I can assure you, it isn't a fashion show bike, it really rides.

This is the inevitable backlash against the big buck jobs now that bubble's about to burst. That's been done by a bike builder, at not inconsiderable expense i'd imagine.
It's Rat Chic, a fashion thing.
The harley equivalent of pre-distressed, patched, Armani jeans, at half as much again to buy as regular ones.
It's a bag of shyte.
This is very similar to the rat rod phenomena. For years people have being running rods in primer and steel to get them on the road until they can get the money together to finish them. Now people are paying shops to build them like that.
