█★█ starsNbars █★█ 38 Hawthorne Twin Bar 5 Bar ☠ - Red White and RUST

Well I finished my Rat Rod Bikes Build Off entry "starsNbars" (Red White and Rust) with this frame. My build this year was a 1938 Monark Built Hawthorne Twin Bar (5 Bar) frame. The 5 bars of the frame are what inspired the "BARS" part of the build name.

Build Thread - https://www.ratrodbikes.com/forum/in....inished.83243/
Walk around video at the Savannah Railroad Museum and Roundhouse

The "STARS" part of the build started with the starsNbars rust and polished rust pattern that I wire wheeled onto the 1930s longspring saddle


Then I mimicked this starsNbars pattern with paint on the JC Girvins Beehive Springer forks I made



Here are some more photos of the finished bike taken around Historic Savannah, Georgia . Hope you enjoy the bike and my city.
















There are some incredible builds this year. You can see a finished gallery of them here - Official RRB Build Off 9 Finished Bike List | Rat Rod Bikes

I'm a sucker for railroad stuff, American Baroque cruisers, and custom bikes. Check out the Alt Bikes section. Not suggesting you move this post, but maybe cross post.

Awesome work by you and everyone else in the gallery.

Never get tired of Savannah - it's on the short list of places to retire.

I took your suggestion and shared my post over on the Alt Bike Culture forum as well. We are loaded up with cool old bikes like this over on Rat Rod Bikes.
Here are a couple of more photos from the Railroad Museum and roundhouse

It's a great city for cruising. I am a very proud native and always try to show off the beauty of my city with my bike pics.

I am lucky enough to be a proud native. Glad you like the bike.

Nice bike. I'm a member of the Ratrod bikes forum and this one, so I guess that means I go both ways! Most of the guys here are into vintage road and mountain bikes. There are some truly beautiful restored 30's to 50's fat tire cruisers on Ratrods if anybody here is interested.
