What is a Rat Bike? This argument has been going on nearly as long as the "What's a Biker?" one. Well, to add my 0.02 worth, a Rat Bike is a motorcycle which is ridden instead of cleaned, maintained at the lowest possible cost with whichever parts are at hand, and which is usually painted matt black. There's no room on a Rat Bike for things like Chrome or, horror of horrors, bolt on plastic pretending to be chrome Live To Ride (TM) accessories. Some motorcycles just "grow" into rats during years of hard riding, others are turned into survival bikes as a personal style statement. Loved by their owners and hated by the police, Rat Bikes are a way of life. Have a look around and decide for yourself!
