If you're anything like me, you've got junk/stuff/extra/used/spare parts taking up space in your garage/shop/shed/yard. In order to make room for the latest project I drug home, I had to clear out some of it.

Kid's old red wagon had seen better days. Rusty, dirty, peeling paint, flat tires, etc. I almost threw it away, but figured I could clean it up a little and use it to haul parts around at swap meets.

Some bald rear tires and axle from an old Honda ATV, some shocks from a mountain bike, spindles from on old go-kart, and leftover aluminum tubes and rod ends transform it into more of a hot rod wagon.

Can't decide whether to leave the patina or sandblast/powercoat it.

rat rod (i.e. flat black with red wheels.) That combination is a bit played out in cars, which will make it funny in a wagon.

^^this is not as silly as it sounds. It would be a fun pit "bike", and would look pretty stylish with a GRM sticker.
