I'm not much of a fan of "customs", particularly choppers, but this one sort of gets me going. On ebay...

Thruxton based bobber

The back of the seat should have been raised. Aside from that I wouldn't lower or stretch it because then things go scrapey scrapey, and there is no reason why this wouldn't handle the twisties as well as a regular Bonnie.

I think the reason why it looks a little off compared top vintage bobbers is that the engine is taller so the rest of the bike looks overly tall.

I dig it.

:-D :-D :-D :-D :cool: :cool: :cool: :cool:

What is not to like. It needs a different seat, mhop, but I could and would ride the wheels off this pretty little girl.

I am in total agreement with the Jazzman

Steve, gears and all mechanical contrivances

I think I would have left the rearsets on. The placement of the pegs seems wrong. Other than that it's pretty cool.

At least some velocity stacks.
It looks unfinished the way it is
