Fulton County Chopper
My brother Nate had a great day yesterday--the fire-spitting, brass-knuckles embellished motorcycle he had just finished building won "Best Rat" in the EAV Roll Car Show in Atlanta. "A rat bike, like a rat rod, is a super-chopped, low-budget, un-pretty motorcycle," he wrote us, knowing my mom and my sister and I wouldn't understand the term (though I am sure my bike-owning brother Bob did). Nate is now officially an award-winning motorcycle builder. Pictures:
Nice ride, eh? High handlebars and coordinating helmet.
He mounted the brass knuckles at the rear of the frame, over the tire.
