yes I would agree, Custom work is very hard to quote. I have to admit this pump was exhausting! I can't tell you how many nights I spent pondering ideas in my head rather then sleeping. My next build will be a traditional branded pump but I already have an idea of what kind of theme pump I'll be building after that, Just have to find the right pump.

If my experience in building up costom/theme pumps is any indicator,you might prepare yourself for a"can you do one in a ???".For me it was easy to price out work that I had done but harder to price out a custom ???.

Best of luck.

Nice pump! Don't know about rat rod though, there's no rust nor spiderwebs and it doesn't look like it's going to fall apart wink

I just don't have this kind of imagination... so I do what really existed and what I can have a model!

Keep up the good work.

Nice!!!!!!! A buddy of mine built a rat bike, from everything but bike parts. And then he got it warmed up and poured gas on the motor, to give it that never washed look. Very cool!!!! But dangerous....Ditto,On the Chick.

Turned out nice Joe. I would rather see the Chevron pump rebranded like yours than end up at the recyclers.
