Bobber your life

In spring 2013 I started my XS 650 Bobber project not imaging how great the result will look like. Having seen the Brat Kit Style (and some other parts like gas tank) from Monstercraftsman this was the only way to modify the frame and to get (do not ask me how) the technical approval from the German TÜV which is required for official road use. Hard tail never goes thru. It is ready for the road now! Like it?

I was lucky to find the famous custom bike builder Dirk Oehlerking, who is technically a genius and regarding style also very imaginative. Together with him we built the bike you can see now. Check out his webpage to see which kind of other bikes he has customized (especially his BMWs!).

Stay tuned and have fun building and riding… would be happy to share more details with you guys…
