Cool bike, but it's not a rat - you can't make one of them (puts away can opener and pulls up the sofa)

My Welsh is not the best..some words have more than one meaning such as Cwm-Pen-Ol in High hopes meaning Backside Valley / Behind the head of the Valley. but I think that means Lonely Valley / Isolated Valley..Somewhere in West Wales?

Thats why it's her" Project".She begged n borrowed and aquired the bits for it,put it together n now to let nature do it's course.
I know a "RAT" evolves over time and eventually it will be seen scurrying around.

She loves it n hopefully it will be a good runner for her.


Oh by the way John-Cwm-ynys-coy,is Little Brook Valley.-Runs to join the Afon-Llywydd at the Pont-y-moil from Pont-y-pwl.

It still won't be a rat though, as it was deliberately started with that intention - it's a fashion statement. True rats just haven't been bothered with cosmetically, this has been deliberately created with a particular style in mind, same as any custom bike.

That doesn't make it a rat, but it doesn't stop it being a cool bike either.

Is it even the same bike as in the first pic ?
Different tank, different seat, different side panels, not just stuff resprayed matt black.
I also thought a ' rat ' had to evolve,but as someone said before, you build a custom so why not a rat !

The idea is to build from what you can get then the "project" is see how it evolves.
