I have a hankering for all types of bikes. Over the years I've lost much of the appeal I used to have for chrome but I still do see it's beauty. I just don't like to polish it anymore.
A rat bike is special to me. A rat bike don't need a thing minus reliability. If it fits and works properly, it goes on. No appearance to worry over, just reliability with the basics. On the other hand, a pristine original makes me mouth water. A restored rider does the same thing to me. Hell... even a tralier queen will make me drool. That is me though....now....not way back when.
