Bone Shaker

1935 Ford Pickup ratrod owned by Lucky-U Cycles on display at Leesburg Bikefest 2010.  A friend of mine has one that is very similar, though more ratty than hotrod.  It's bad enough that your knees are against the dash while hunched over to keep from hittin' your head against the roof, but you are literally three inches from the pavement in something that has no rear suspension (the rear end is bolted directly to the frame) and has chopped front leaf springs.  About the only modern convenience either of them has is...uhhhhh....yeah, I'll have to get back to on that one.  Hell, as long as it looks cool, who gives a shit what it rides like.
