Looking for input on Bobbers

I posted before about CHR doing a line of Bobber type motorcycles. Within the next six weeks that will become a reality.

I am looking for feedback as to likes and dis-likes of whats already out there, and what would you all suggest to make a better Bobber. IE.. tank or fender options, other options as well bars tires wheels paint schemes even pricing input is welcome (within reason LOL)

I have been talking with a few folks here that fab up specialty parts and one option will be PACO's air seat.

What we are going with as a basic is our wishbone rigid frame 32 or 33 degree with 2 up ( still not 100% on the stretch) but downsizing the tubing to 1 1/8th, flat axel pockets vice our enclosed ones 130-200 tire16 or 21 front, hyd or springer front end etc. Looking at many tank and fender options as well as hand shift for those jockey pilots.

The basic bike will use an EVO motor,5 speed, belt or enclosed primary, chain final.

Of course when the need arises they can be EPA Bullshit compliant and will come with our VIN.

Yep, the driftwood is still there and had a face lift a year or so ago. New paint, stucco etc.

Jeff and them (SPS) build a nice product at a good price. They definantly got it going on.

Thanks for the feedback. We do plan to make some with no handle bar switches and some with as well.

Ill have to look into the battery box suggestion, there is room under the tranny, but not behind it as of now. That would be on the rigid, the softy model would not work at all due to the shocks.

The plan right now is to build 5 rigids at first and sell them at 13,500.00 two of which are already spoken for locally.

Please continue to give suggestions and feed back allthough a Bobber is just that, simple and clean. Change it too much it is no longer a bobber.IMO.

Sounds good to me. Since you're wavering, I'd say don't bother with the 2" stretch in the front - I reckon bobbers look nice when they're nice and low all over (except for the apes if you have them, which look better without a raised neck anyway).

If you are having your frame built to your specs, consider using a 1" rear axle rathern than 3/4" . You can build a sweet 'no battery' kick only Evo by mounting up a Morris or Hunt magneto and using a 22 amp Cycle Electric stator and regulator with a 'NB' (no battery) part number.

Do a real respectable old school kick only bobber and eliminate the electrical and battery. It is the only way to go! Simple and clean! Don't let kick starts intimidate you, they usually start on the first or second kick as long as you prime it properly (mag click!) and put some gas into the carb!

Stay away from the Chinese trans and parts and you will have a bike that will last you a lifetime!

If you are interested in any component plan or list, PM me and I will drop you a line!

Mag is the only way to go brother! That is why they are used on fighter airplanes!!!

Push button and a battery is easier, but when your electrical system fails on a dark roadside, good luck trying to figure out the rats nest of wiring. Especially on the fuel injected computerized bikes!
