That's not a rat...

mine's a rat

In fact every bike I've ever owned has been a rat.

no it's not a rat really, its a little rough round the edges and built on a budget
but to be a true rat it would have to develop overtime, a rat is kept on the road used abused for as cheaply as possible, any replacement parts needed are done as cheaply as possible no matter how crude they look
My bike could fall under the survival bike categorty in that it was made to look that way but to me and anyone who asks me - it's just my bike

this is my friend mark's bike - this is a rat

this thing's been crashed, set alight, chopped in half had various engines you name it and its still going strong

had to change the headlamp, bulbs kept blowing on t'other - i think the spotlights i had were pulling too much, changed them twice then they just got so hot they melted the casing, got this round headlight from an old cb250, I think it looks better and i can actually see where i'm going with it cos its a halogen none aftermarket job. put me some luggage on too, saves me taking backpack to work.

it's spelt 'swastika'....

why not??

displayed 'flat' like that it's widely used in Indian religions as a sacred symbol of good luck, dating back over 4,000 years.

it's also used 'flat' by the jewish community.

maybe the O.P. is a red sea pedestrian??

to my mind, the placement of the swastikas reminds me of the way british/american fighter pilots would mark a kill, same as the bombs marking a successful raid by bomber crews

Fair enough but maybe some dumb coloured guys (not being racist) might take offence and smash your bike up, thats what i would worry about lol.

isn't the indian 'swastika' got the dots and tips being slightly bent

sorry for late reply, havent been on in a while
on the swastika's the theme of the bike is from old ww1/2 fighter planes - panelling sharks mouth etc the old bombers would paint the side of their plane with kill marks (usually down by the cockpit) this is what the bombs on the other side of the tail are
and also the swastika's on the other side
however peoples ignorance to what the swastika actually is are making me think wether i should paint over them or at least put a red cross through them.
the swastika was used many thousands years before hitler and the nazi's adapted it - infact IIRC hitler used the swastika as it was a symbol of good luck - not that it worked for him - the iron cross is also a symbol widely associated with the nazi party yet the chopper community use this widely without anybody fluttering an eyelid - although again this symbol was used many years before the nazi party took it

the bike does get a few what the fuck faces pulled at it but thats part of the fun isn't it? it gets more attention than the standard bikes and pulls a crowd - not sure if thats for the good or bad hahahaha

seat is steep yeah its a bit uncomfy but once you get used to it its not too bad its bearable - 15 mile to work an im fine
not long to build - a couple months maybe - basically just stripped the unwanted stuff off rewelded a subframe and bolted a few bits here an there
