Larry Medwig from Painesville, Ohio had an old tractor collecting dust. So, he decided to combine his passionate of motorcycles with his DIY know how, and build the aptly named “Rat Bike”. It’s made from several individual repurposed parts from old vehicles, including an International Harvester LB engine from a cement mixer, while the transmission is Crosley automobile sourced, David Bradley wheels, along with a pipe fitting-based frame / forks. The main body, however, is actually the recycled front of a Farmall Cub tractor. Click here to view more pictures. Continue reading for another video of the tractor bike and more information.
“When asked how it drives, Medwig said ‘Like a picnic table.’ So it’s not the most comfortable bike ever built, but at least it runs at it is rideable, not to mention it’s one of those artistic creations that always has people doing a double take whenever they spot it,” reports Oddity Central.
