Northeast Bobber

This is my 1981 yamaha bobber project. I have built a ton of mini choppers and owned a nice 1969 triumph chopper, but this is my first complete build.

    Great paint on that tank! Who did it, and what kind of tank is it?

    The wassel is way better than the sporty, where in the north east are you? Looking good so far!

  3. Tony says:

    Thanks Aaron, This was my attempt at a tribute to Indian Larry, I loved his bikes. Not sure of the kind of tank it is, just a peanut tank I won on ebay. Was suppose to be for a mini chopper i built but it was to big..Still not sure what tank to use!!

  4. Tony says:

    Hey Sean, I was thinking the same thing about the tank, still up in the air though. Im from way up here in Bangor Maine.

  5. Sean from boston says:

    Wow that’s a hike ha but not a bad ride, ya it looks to me like an old wassel (forgive my spelling it might be wrong) but the brand should be stamped in the tunnel

    I love the flamed tank. Getting a bit tired of all the sporsterstanks (got one myself), they are nice but you see them everywhere!

    Sweet looking tank. Im here in RI got about tree weeks left till I’m finished with my first xs650. Do you know of any other riders here in the northeast?

  8. Byron Hocker says:

    I get tons of ideas from here to. I can’t wait to get my project rolling so I can post some pics. Any advice on which hardtail to buy?

  11. Tony says:

    Hey J-Rod, I used a TC Bros. hardtail , easy to put on and looks awesome.

  12. J-Rod says:
