Travis – First bobber build

travis-first-bobber-build

Travis – I’ve always wanted a bobber. Been working in the metal industry for a few years now and decided it was the perfect time to build one. Got a stock 73′ xs. Chopped it and welded on a hard tail. Laser cut custom gussets for the frame. Tc bros forward pegs. Then hand made a seat and got some springs. Found an old sportster tank. Bent up some drag bars. Rolled a rear fender. Made a license plate bracket and mounted a model a style brake light. Lasar cut a brass knuckle jockey shift. Had a good buddy of mine from SMC customs mandrel bend me a custom 2 into 1 exhaust and also a 2 into 1 carb manifold with a mikuni snowmobile carb on the end. Just ordered the tv bros magneto kit and the rest of my parts needed. Should be done and running by summer!

    It looks like he is using a Heineken keg to me.

    Those controls look haggard sticking way out there. Other than that you win.
