The Shop Rat motorcycle was made in the U.S.A. It features an air-cooled, v-twin four-stroke engine. The ignition is by battery and coil. The engine displacement is 1638cc (120 c.i.d.). Fuel is supplied via a single S & S carburetor. Getting the power to the ground is by a Baker six-speed transmission. The suspension features front telescopic forks and rear twin shocks (under the transmission). Brakes are front and rear disc. The motorcycle weighs in at 650 pounds.

According to the museum's fact sheet "Shop Rat was a project bike built by students of Chelsea High School in Alabama. This was a team effort and the result is a stunning example of custom motorcycle art."
