Hey guys - Im new to the forum and after many years of sport bikes and standards, I picked up a 2007 900 classic. I am considering bobbing it, but wondering about my options. I dont really have the tools to fabricate much myself, but I really like the solo seat look. Im not terribly excited about chopping the struts off the frame on this bike yet (maybe in the future). Any options of a solo/spring type seat and smaller fender, but retaining the struts? Or has anybody modified theirs to be able to bolt the struts back on if they want to do some 2 up riding? Thanks!!

I had the same issue. I wanted a bit of the bobber style, but I didn't want to cut my frame because my wife likes to ride with me sometimes. I opted for a steel smooth short fender that looked bobbed but was still attached to the frame struts. I custom made the seat but you could put a springer solo seat on there as well. I based the design off of the new Harley Davidson Softail Slim.



I am very happy with the look I achieved.





If your not too mechanical inclined you can look into fenders designed for running a wide rear tire. They look very similar to the fender I made. There are few companies that make fenders like this for the Vulcan 900.

Thanks for the info! Looks great.....pretty much the idea I'm looking for. Did you lower your bike?

Yes and no. Just last week I looked under my bike to see that it was lowered 2 inches by the previous owner. For 3 years I had no idea it was lowered.
