Do you know if those are cosmetic springs or just decals on his upper forks? That looks pretty cool at least from a distance on video.

Nice to see you back Mort. I'm not a real fan of bobbers, but that one I like.

+1 Not a big fan of Bobbers, but I've watched his vids and to see the final outcome makes me want to go out and buy another bike and build one, but 3 bikes? Might be a little much.

His bike is top notch. I love the looks.

3 bikes? Yeh, I got 3 R*s!!!

One is two up with windscreen and bags for the bride and I, and any travel or hi-speed riding.

The second is a solo-rider with radial performance tires on 18" wheels for some more serious corner carving... lean angle is greater.

But, the 3rd, and most recent, is my bobber. I love bobbers... especially rat bobbers. I didn't rat mine, it takes an extra special artistic gift to do one right, and I just don't have that. So, I did it in bright white, and jst put white rubber 'coke bottle' hand grips on it. It's still a work in progress, but now it's only about the details, so as to make it 'pop'!

I like a lot about what this fellow did to make his bobber. Sure wish I had his skills, machines and patience. After I wear these tires out, I think I'll go with Firestone repros.

That bobber looks good. I have been watching some of his build up videos in the past and posted a message about them on the clinic.
