Vanning is a compulsion, an obsession, an occupation, an affliction, a fascination, a fate. It is not a hobby. Those who do it, must. Those who don't, think it's a waste of time. For me it is a calling.

For the last 9 years I've had a chopper I built shortly after Ed Roth passed away. I built it as a tribute to him and the Rat Fink. It is a vintage chopper I bought that belonged to another friend of mine who had also passed away. It was origonally built in 1975 from a Harley Sportster. It has an aftermarket Amen frame & Columbus springer front end. You can see some of the things I have made or added to the bike. The streached coffin tank, R.F. tail light. and of coures the Rat Fink paint job. I rode this bike for several years, but due to a case of carpel tunnel, I can't ride it without my arms and hands going numb. Not being able to ride It, I've decided to sell the finkchopper

The origonal iron head motor has been replaced with a 1992 sportster motor. I got tired of the thing breaking down on me. It's a lot easier to work on and has never caused me any trouble since.. I will more than likely put this on ebay sometime in the next few weeks. If you are interested in the bike contact me. I'm not asking a lot for her..
