German's Electra Rat Rod
German sends us his 2003 Electra Rat Rod
I stripped her down after 5 years of running stock: fenders and chainguard are gone. I also flipped the handlebar. In true bobber tradition, I tried to use the front fender in the rear but it won't clear the chain. The look was inspired by the boardtrack racers of the early 1900's. Now I'm looking for a Brooks-style racing saddle, maybe a bent post. And maybe fork struts.
Moved to Victoria this past summer, looking forward to the next.
Glad I left Ottawa!
