anybody have info on "lil sara's" bobber?

came across this page called lil sara and her triumph bobber, the bike is really nice(would paint the tank though), but there is no info on the bike at all. I was wondering if anybody on here has seen or has any info on the bike at all. Frame year? motor? wheel size? how much are the forks cut? pipes? who built it? you know, the usual questions lol

I did a google search as well and could only find a few pictures
Here is a pic of the bike and the link to the webpage.

Except for the tank, I like the bike. It looks so simple, lithe and also light. To me that's the essence of a bobber.
Bikes with minimalist style and purity of function, unlike choppers that offer only dubious style and sacrifice performance to achieve that.
In a way that's what motorcycles began as and the best bikes still echo that fact.

I'm sorry I can't provide any technical details but because of it's simplicity, I cant imagine it being very difficult to reproduce either. I've seen pictures of lots of other bikes that look very similar.

It's not that unique. I know where there's a bobber for sale that looks a bit cleaner but it's on a HD dealer's floor so I'm bettin it ain't as cheap as a lot of em are.

Bobbers are more or less one offs and built to one's taste. Jason Lee of "My name is earl" had a bobber built for him. Might be some info if you google jason lee's bobber.... on who built his at least.

Just did his and it's Falcon Motors in Silver lake, CA.
