The body looks to be in good shape. Engine looks clean. Is that primer or is the paint that dull? hows the inside look? What'* the miles?

I am a huge fan of flat black. I was doing flat on my harleys years ago before everyone started doing it.

I LOVE rat rods, having a shiny car (or bike) is way too much work. I painted my current bike with a faux rust paint from a hobby shop. Looks like it has been sitting is a field for 50 years and shouldn't even run, but runs like a raped ape.

Nice ride, man.

Here ya go. This is our favorite toy right now (just ahead of the bonnie).

I just went out and snapped these. They don't really do justice to how bad it looks in person. She was shiny and purdy when we picked her up, but Kim and I really went out of our way to make it look like crap. We even purposely park it in the dirt floored machine shed under the rafter that the birds nest on so that they will crap on it. It looks like hell, but sounds awesome and runs as good as it sounds.
