Simple & Stupid Loud Bobber

The craze is directly related with this site. The Pics and Posts are inspiration.

This is a 77XS with a 6″ hard tail and its been my daily rider for a year now. Over the last year I put some dif bars and -2 springer front end on it.

The frame was found in the weeds and the motor was 50 bucks.  The rest was easy after that.  Craigs, ebay and junkyards are my friends. Note: to the people looking to put a DNA spinger. Dont buy a adapter.

Just shave the bearing spacer that comes with the DNA a little, Make it fit the bottom XS neck bearing, shave the fork stops off the neck and the rest is easy to figure out. All the post out there get  retarded on the subject.

Im trying my version of a Brat at this time on another 77 but its got a 5″ stretch in the frame, trying to go with the style of the Wizard SleeZe cause that bike just looks bad ass.

There has been a lot brats on the site and the look kick ass but as a smart man once said on this site “Its like a monkey fucking a football”. The Stock xs is a short bike. The brat is sitting on its two wheels and kick stand at this time. Motor, Wassell tank and the bars are on. Ill get some pics up after paint.

Cant wait to see how it rides.

    I like them all, but I happen to want mine to come out like this. It’s got a little shine, a little rust, and nice visual balance. If you were to ask me, I’d have told you that 6 over is too long, but I’d have been wrong. It has some understated expertise in the planning without it being show-offy. Obviously built by somebody who knows the fundamentals without having to overthink it. Can easily hold its own next to a shinier bike. Even the gas filter and the chipped red paint on the rear disc become details on a stripped build like this. It has a broken-in, road patina to it. Five stars lol.

    No chain tensioner?

    Simple & Stupid Loud Bobber is how the bike started. If you search Simple & Stupid Loud Bobber it will come up with the 1st phase, “Bobber like”, then another post “Chopper like”. same bike dif phase….Simple and you get to see something with the same tail look so different. I just build them call them what you want cause they are never done. Ill post again. you wouldnt recognize the bike.

    First off I would like to say awesome blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.

    I was interested to know how you center yourself
    and clear your mind before writing. I have had a hard time clearing my
    mind in getting my thoughts out there. I do take pleasure in
    writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are lost just trying to figure out how to begin.
    Any suggestions or tips? Appreciate it!
