Brodie said:A friend of mine from work described a rat rot to me as "a vehicle that is more focused on running right and proper rather than looking good."
So something that has all the go fast bits, runs like a top and doesn't matter how the parts look so long as the function.
New wheel, clean frame and rack matter not. Ignore the aesthetics and work on the mechanical. See where it comes to in the end.

SquidHunter said:I mean..... those are important bits tho . Just because it’s “ratty” doesn’t mean it should also ride like crap. Seems like a good investment to me.
