Introduction: My "RubberRat" Bike
In 2009 I began a project to make my bike in to a "Rubber Rat". Inspired by the beauty's I found at http://www.ratrodbikes.com, a build off there (I never made the deadline), and a fettish for recycling rubber innertubes.
The start was my beachcruiser which I put on a rubbercloth of inner tubes and bisontex glue. Then I customized diferent things like the saddle, saddlebag, tankbag, fenders etc. Take a look at the pictures I hope they'l speak for themselfses.
Actually there are two versions, The mark I, first version racer, with homemade frontfork and the mark II, the cargo version (much handier with kids :P), the current state.
