    rat rod, chopper, and tall bike video & pics

    Had some fun last evening at the Sacramento Midtown Cruise. It's part of the monthly Second Saturday art festival. This time there were several tall bikes and a couple choppers present. Plenty of rat bikes too. There was even an antique Indian motorcycle!

    Some of these tall bikes were not in the ride because the owner couldn't find riders for them.

    Very cool rides. I wish I could participate in a ride like this. The town I live in seems to be more into lowrider bikes, with one or two shows happening a year.

    Enjoyed the pics and the videos.

    Thank you

    I'm not sure if you're familiar with www.ratrodbikes.com, but they have an events section on their forum. Here's the thread for this month's Sacramento Midtown Cruise:

    How are you recording this freight train? Steering with one hand and holding the camera in the other?

    Yup. I'm on a trike, so it's easier and safer to ride like that. When I do ride videos on my road or hybrid bikes I use a handlebar mount.

    Love the video. Tomorrow we are having the 4th Annual Savannah Earth Day Wheelie Dealie around town.
    Today I picked this Miele "Last Call" up on CL for a song to ride in the Wheelie.

    Nice

    Here's my Earth Day ride videos. The first one is raw, the second one is sped-up to the Benny Hill theme:

    I love all of those bikes! I have a rat rod chopper of my own.

    That Indian is a nice replica, but it's not the real thing... look real close, it's a Grubee 2-stroke kit with a fake crankcase underneath it. Still, looks better than anything I could have made!

    I didn't use my mount on either of these rides. I used my Casio EX-S12 digital camera in my hand the whole time.

    When I do my hill ride videos I use my Kodak Playsport waterproof camera on a Pedco UltraClamp handlebar mount. I bought it here. I like baregreen.com because they let you choose your preferred shipping method. I always choose USPS because I've had bad luck with FedEx and UPS.

    Rebel Without a Cause

    I added ape hangers to my Miele low rider then went for a ride to our park in Savannah. I came across the end of the Confederate Memorial Day service and couldn't resist getting one of the characters to pose on my ride.

    I call this photo "Rebel Without a Cause"

    Went for a ride yesterday and came across this very cool modified Felt rat rod cruiser. Lots of cool mods on this one.
    Solar charged battery pack.
    Battery case made from license plate.
    Custom laced giant rims spokes and tires. Three speed internal with drum brake.
    Custom skateboard rack with special holes to handle all of his locking cables/locks when he is riding.

    Here's video of the Sacramento Cyclefest pre-show ride. Lots of cool customs and rat rod bikes, several with on-board sound systems. One guy was towing a trailer with a car stereo system in it with bass!
