To build a custom old school bobber that was a dependable rider. And stand out in a crowd
Wanted to build a custom on stock frame
Using the FL headlight nacelle when everyone one said loose it. Always knew it would look killer with a 21, no front fender and finished to match gas tank and rear fender.
The wrinkle black on original rockers,cam case and primary saved a lot and looks good.
Have built several bikes with all new parts but building this old bike to like new or better specs was definitely a challenge and something to be proud of. Have updated all i can and it will run with newer bikes and stay together. I also built this bike in honor of all the POW-MIA that never came home. The number on the oil tank 58,272 in total lives lost in Vietnam.
A lot really like it. I have a friend into long bikes and doesn’t like bobbers but he likes this one.
I was shocked how well it was liked at the local dealership. Even the younger techs loved it and had a lot of questions. That’s a really good feeling.
