Thats a good answer.Like the guys who took the fenders,hood, and showed the motor on the first deuce coupes.Same type hotrodding look.makes sense.The theory behind the bobber is that it's the cruiser equivalent to a street fighter- any extra weight pulled off. Because cruisers are essentially based on bikes from the 50's, a lot of the inspiration comes from there- wheels painted red like the old race wheels, Ford tail lights like 50's hotrots used, flat black like the old-school primer, things like that.
I remember that bike.
heres some pictures of the bob at this time.. I will get more work done to her as soon as I get to killa cali.. cant wait!!
in frisco where im from.. that's where it all started.. so the saying less is best... a stock bike with all the unnecessary things off of it.. no rake..(the first bike had a rake but fuck it lol its a chopper) skinny as shit so splitting lanes was easier (skinny bars as well not long and all off to the side).. my bars im throwing on the vn8 are in cali so im riding back on Wednesday.. throw em on.. maybe go to LA from Washington.. and fast as hell.. ill give you more info if you want on the history.. but now days its all up to you kinda thing.. people call them frisco bobbers and don't even know what it means.. bobbers as dusty explained it was perfect.. now being friscoed.. that's a different story.. good luck and let me know if you need help or advice at least..
