On another website, they were having a rat rod bicycle build-off, so I tried my hand at it. Thought y'all might be interested. Not pretty, but it's different.
I started with a cheap Kent women's bike that we bought a couple of years ago:
Made some minor styling changes:
Prepped it by masking off what I didn't want to paint and used some good ol' 99 cent spray paint:
Added some snake box supports:
Painted the rims red:
Put a seat I had laying around on it, got new handlebars and stem to clear the snake box:
Built a snake box with pegboard and scrap wood:
Did some stenciling to the best of my abilities (and downloaded a snake image for the frame):
Rounded up some snakes from Rain Forest Cafe and the Dollar Tree:
Now to find a rider.
