I saw this one http://www.ridedfw.com/ridedfw/ERBS/erbike%20015.jpg on a local website. The guy owns a paint shop in Dallas. He has a Escalade with spinners and the same skulls on the rims behind the spinners.Here is the link to his shop check out the rims on the Cadillac behind them.

My favs
Only thing I would change on this one is the front fenders height and size.

The wood concept actually works great

Bobbers FTW! Understated class, how a custom should be done imo

A great tribute to Indian Larry, I remember him doing standup christ airs on a loud ass bobber...down some busy new york street live on david letterman.



This one made me lul. "My bike is so badass it only holds a pint of fuel"

The blue bike with the fender.. that is cause of the springer front end.... unlike with traditional forks where the fender moves with the front axle... that fender is attached to the trailing fork rod aka fixed and the front wheel axle moves on the springer pivit.

Aha, was wondering what that was about. I thought it might have an air suspension so the fender was higher to accomodate a drop, the GIANT SPRINGS should've clued me in.

Did most bikes of that era have chain drive on the right side? What year/model is that? I would guess that's an engine swap that's been done to it? Do you have to modify the frames on older harleys or indians to accomodate modern v-twins?

I've wanted a bobber forever but used or already fabricated they're ungodly expensive. I'd even take a ratbike bobber but every one I find has several serious issues that I would have no idea how to fix.

I am digging the old school/rat chopper style. And the best part is you can pick them up pretty cheap!

No... RSD is a more recent thing to help with a better balance right to left by moving the motor over and some of the primary weight off the left side. The only one to have RSD for a while was the sportys. No you don't usually have to modify the frames. The motor mounts are mostly the same... you have evo, knuckles, shovels, sporty, indians, ect...

As far as building them... I'll get to that.

They are only cheap to buy if you buy an old busted bike and know how to cut and weld.

If you want to build something a bit easier... try ordering a rolling chassis and going from there.

Also, look at Sucker Punch Sally they make a sweet as set of bobbers.

Thx for the info GM and O. M. G. the 66 bobber is my new dream bike.

Quote:
This is our 66 Bobber, it is built around our SPS no rake, no stretch frame with a flat track flare. If you are not afraid of curves or canyons, the 66 is the model for you. Available in many different paint configurations.
Oh HELL YA!
I'm guessing they start at like $70,000? It says contact them for pricing which is never a good sign.

I'd have sex with that bike in so many ways. Well actually I guess just the intake.

They are all to me. I like the creativity, but its not my style. I can appreciate the hard work that goes into those bikes though.
