If you know me or follow this blog then you know I like the bikes that have been highly modified by their owners. The kind of modification I'm talking about isn't about bolting on mail order parts. Its making it functional with whatever you got or is available at the time of the mod. Throw in some imagination, black paint and a bit of Mad Max and you've got a rat.
This one was spotted May 4th in Leland, Wi at the Slimey Crud Run. Because my memory sucks, we'll refer to the owner as Dude from Baraboo. The bike is an '81 Yamaha XS850.
I like this bike. I guess it would be characterized as a survival rat. I think he said he has $500 into the bike plus the parts he added and claims it runs great.
Good job Dude from Baraboo.
