That's not a rat bike, that's a desert rat bike :-)

You just know that's the kinda guy who would go off on a massive rant about things if you emailed him and asked him about his HP not being correct.

And then call you a bunch of slurs.

236 hp and a speedo that's 130mph? Where does all that power go??
I'm thinking it's 236hp at the head. As in, his head. Maybe he meant 136hp???
Yes, the potato pics are impressive. The previously linked rat bikes had a better sale ad.

See, you guys are used to measuring in horse power. This bike is clearly measured in husky power.

It’s pretty much the same thing, but it overheats in the summer, and it’s forced to pull along this big sled.

He racked out that front end. I wonder if he used something like this to do it?

Actual numbers from a big bore kitted raider, my guess he's adding the numbers together:

Which would you prefer?
