Today’s Bike Of The Day is a Fate Products ProXL “Rat Rod” sent in by Dave Hoffmann. Be sure to give a rating for the December Bike Of The Month and 2020 Bike Of The Year charts. Keep submitting those bikes!
The inspiration for the build is the film FULL METAL JACKET. I wanted a war machine. Rough, rugged, and ready to go to battle. I’ve been racing an OS20 and was tired of aluminum and skinnies. Being a freestyle/street rider, I wanted more meat under the seat so it was time to go back to 20″. I wanted to go back to basics, Cro-Mo frame and fork, parts from my collection, and some fat tires. I’m a sign guy so I had to make it my own with custom graphics. I love knowing I’m the only kid in the block with one!!! Shout out to Matthew Kocher at FATE PRODUCTS and JONATHAN HOGUE for the build!~Dave Hoffmann
