I never would have thought i would actually like this rusty piece of sh*t to much.

And yes, make no mistake, it is really a piece of sh*t in pretty much every way.

It is rusty, has the most insane understeer on any bike i ever drove...really i could swear the western badger handles like a sport bike compared to this one....

But...the rust look...it just gives it some class no other rusty or worn vehicle has

just look how this thing blends into were it would belong:

I just know this thing is horrible, but i honestly will not like it if there ever is a moment i need to let go of this one, even though i barely have driven it since i own it.

Idk, some may not like it, but I kinda like this bike with the chrome secondary myself. Interesting with a bit of shine and a lot of rust.

I like it, but I just have to say it's not a keeper.

I used to think it's not a keeper, just fun to ride before returning to your main.
Until I got inspired by a Honda VLX 600 project.


Sure, it ain't exactly the same as I can't get the sissy bar or the handlebars style (I'd get Chumps) and it's a softail, gotta get a custom frame, but the basics are there.
And I used one of the Metals instead of Chrome to get that look. Chrome comes off too goddamn bright.

Oh, and I think the name Rodent fits very well.

Long story short,
                          it became a keeper.

People may think the Rat-Bike is absolute trash, but that's what defines what an MC is. Even though it has the steering of a log rolling down a hill, its capable of doing a wheelie all the way down Vinewood Boulevard, so it takes my appreciation.

I know how to get a single white wall tire but is there a way of getting one chrome one painted? Or is there something I'm missing in this (9 month old) pic?

I just put the painted wheel on, add custom tires, then added the chrome wheel

Didn't do anything fancy

That's always reverted the painted one back to chrome for me. I'll have to try that again.

It can't go "back to chrome". Chrome is like a $30,000 option for motorcycle wheels. And front and back wheels are separate options.

Ah, maybe it's reverting to alloy. I'll have to try it myself and see exactly what I did because maybe there was something weird like putting 2 normal wheels, painting, then adding chrome. I'm not entirely sure now

That might be the issue. You may have to do it in a specific order. I meant everytime I try one painted and one chrome I always get two of one or the other. Or I get one chrome and one alloy but then I can't paint the alloy wheel
