A few years back there was a craze, a fad, of trying to build the worst looking rat bike you could find to ride around on. Sort of an anti-hero thing.

But CL has shown me that it's still well and truly alive.

I often wondered if they just sold those old junckers to the wreckers when the novelty wore off. But no, there's CL.

You guys are reminding me of Icon's ridiculous rat


Not a CL piece, but it is a Sporty (kinda... I guess), so it's still mildly relevant.
