I don't have a full shot of its current build, but I consider my Schwinn utility bike to be in the Rat Rod tradition. While I made no attempt to intentionally make anything messy or dirty, the frame and the conglomeration of parts, new and old and handmade and cobbled together, are far from pristine. Everything is functional and arguably practical and purposeful. Rat rod doesn't have to equal rock-a-billy.
