06 Vulcan 900 Bobber build.

Just got my first cruiser ever. With the sole intention of doing a bobber conversion. I like the style of the bobs.

Just picked it up today. Only 7,400 miles on the clock. Paid $3,100 for it. Doesn't seem like a bad deal. Perfect condition.

Going to put some white walls on it, and was thinking if having a short rear fender so I can prevent rocks from flying up - and also be able to put a tail bag on it. A spring seat. Will probably black some stuff out. Get an exhaust for it. And call it a day.

Anyone on here bob theirs? I am somewhat mechanically inclined - however am not engine savvy.

Look forward to getting this underway. I am also on a few bobber forums - bit figured I'd throw this up on here since this is Vulcan specific.

Not sure if you would be interested or not but I have a blue collar bobbers kit for sale. Seat kit, fender kit, and fender mounted license plate / tail light kit. Very good condition.

2008 Vulcan 900 Custom.

Couple of accessories.

Anyone aware of Vulcan 900 specific bobber kits other than the Blue Collar Bobber company?

Seriously, nice job. 900s make some of the best looking bobbers.

My biggest fear is when I die, my wife will sell all my guitars for what I told her I paid for them.
