Bobber project almost complete
My bobber project is getting closer to completion. I started with a bone stock '03 VN800B that had just under 17K on the clock and this is what I've done so far (listed all shipped costs I've paid):
Internal wired 12" black apes $76
Clutch cable $24
Black Kuryakyn Iso grip knock offs $15
Debaffled the exhaust $0
Added exhaust wrap $13 for 50ft
Removed and chopped front and rear fenders $0
Shinko 777 white wall tires $225 (tires, tubes, and rim strips)
Removed chain guard $0
Rear LED light and license plate bracket $26
39T rear sprocket $26
Black bullet LED signals $15 (including a load equalizer for each side)
Removed upper and lower fork covers
Blue Collar Bobbers seat brackets with hardware (not their seat though) $200
La Rosa Diamond stitched seat $65
Synthetic leather swing arm bag ($34 and VERY nice)
I chopped the sides and back of the rear fender but don't like the way it looks so a gloss black Blue Collar Bobber fender is being delivered tomorrow ($245). I've chopped the front fender, which I do like, but probably not going to mount it.
I also bought a set of knock off Harley controls to replace the stock when I get the urge. I can't decide if I like the 12" apes and thinking about going to 10". If I do that I'll definitely put on the HD controls at that time. I have a rubber pinstripe removal wheel delivering tomorrow ($10) and will take off the tank decals.
I need to adjust the valves at some point this spring and will do the engine mods at that time. So far it's been a fun project.
