and aggressive-looking cafe racer style bike

What motivated you to start your project?

when I first started building these Honda Shadow bobbers I remember seeing one online and thinking to myself that’s what I want. I started fabricating my own parts and making my design on different styles that I have seen. It took me several tries to get where I’m at now but this particular bike was a style I’ve been wanting for a while. The look of this Honda Shadow Bobber is more on the aggressive style. I wanted the lettering to be white but not spend the money to buy those expensive tires. I wanted the paint job on the tank to be the centerpiece of the bike. Although the paint job had the metallic on it I didn’t want it to outshine everything else so I put a matte clear coat. I also wanted a matte black look but not the doll looking matte black but the style that Harley-Davidson uses. Plus I wanted that racer style look and so I added the cafe clip-on bars. So on this build I chopped the tailbone of the frame I added a hardtail strut I added my own bracket for the solo seat that also included a bolt for the rear fender. I made the rear fender from an old one I had and connected it to the frame with brackets that I made. I also painted the triple trees and the forks the matte black with a heat-treated paint as well as painted the pipes black to give it that aggressive look. I also took out the airbox pull the carbs Jetta Dam an added cone air filters. The bike runs magnificent and I’m happy with the outcome. Hope you all enjoy it thank you
