I just finished this Rat Chevy Rod with a star engine. I found a pics on the web and I was hooked.
I use a 39 chevy that I lowered the body on the frame. I chopped the hood and front fenders into flame design. I added some relief flames on the side and trunk.
I fabricated a radial engine from scratch and made engine support and transfer case to mount the Chevy auto transmission.

Super cool Mike. I tried building a radial engined motor cycle, but never finished it.

Has a checkered past.
