///Our 2016 Bike Of The Year winner, BrockGrimes!\\\


Congratulations BrockGrimes on winning Bike Of The Year 2016 and Bike Of The Month January 2016!!!


Here's my 2008 Vulcan 900 Custom Bobber.

Year: 2008
Model: Vulcan 900 Custom
Eng size: 900
Pipes: Cobra
Seat: BlueCollarBobbers
Wheels: Stock
Accessories: Blue collar bobbers seat and rear fender, tc bros side mount plate, motogadget signals, kuryakyn grips

And the story:
I bought it completely stock drove it home and started the teardown the same day.
I pulled the seat, rear fender, tool box, and stock signals. Broke out the sawzall and off went the rear fender supports.
I installed a blue collar bobber seat and rear fender which I had color matched to the bike. Blacked out the air cleaner and headlight housing.
Next came the TC Bros side mount plate and brake light along with Motogadget LED signals (bar end disc and pin rear turn signals).
Installed for that clean look. It has Cobra pipes and a cobra FI2000 controller. Also has kuryakyn grips which I had to mod a little to get the signals in.

Good job, man! If you can, could you post a pic of the other side (or a link to the thread that has one)?. I'd like to see the plate mount and turn signals on that side =)
