On a small budget, this rat bike was the first of many custom motorcycles he hammered out from scratch there. Some on a tight $2,000 budget, and some worth over $80,000. The Crap Weezel took 2nd place in a bike show during Laconia Bike Week against dozens of high end choppers, plus a couple magazine features and articles.

Anything that rolls through the door will be worked on. All odds and ends, from steel fabrication, small engine repair, Western and Meyer snow plow sub-distribution, snow plow installations, and more.
No Risk, No Gain.
