A lot of trikes. I'd call most of those "novelties." A 'rat-bike,' to me is what Smitty rode all-over the USA. I saw him at Bike Week > once.

Here's some of the rattiest Vmax's that have been through here (most of them didn't leave here like this lol).

I used to ride this one all over the place . it is more of a true rat in my opinion than some on the video. I did not watch the whole video though.

I would ask you the story behind the toilet seat, but then again I lose enough sleep nights as it is, so I'll give it a pass.

Kyle, I watched the whole thing. The label 'rat bike' was a misnomer for most of what bikes were there. Few were like Smitty's, and I know that you probably saw his bike somewhere during Bike Week, or at some 1% event in the Oldsmar/Tampa/Leesburg area.

I was relieved to not-see any brown stains on the 'terlet seat.' 🤭😧
