My Bobber project
      #375119 - 02/22/09 07:17 PM

Hello all, i thought i would show you the bobber project i am working on. It is a Yamaha xs 650 1979. I found it my area pretty cheap. Guy told me it wouldnt run. Got it home, had it running in about 15 minutes(wire problem) and took it for an hour ride. The bike in stock shape is pretty short and im 6' 1" so i spent the majority of the time on the passenger seat. got it home and tore it apart. this is where it is at now. hardtail frame, stretched 4.5" in rear, 4" downtubes with a gooseneck and 2" in the backbone. I will be running a 4" over harley springer on it.I have most of the parts now the only thing i am unsure of is the paint. Hope you enjoy.

These next 2 pictures are for Dunnspeed. The first one is the bar ends on my america, the second is a set of risers for my bobber. I couldnt find spike risers for a springer so i bought from 2 places and modified both to make them work together. For those of you who are going to ask, yes i a min the process of bleeding the brakes(bungee cord around the grip)

Frame was done by a guy in Philly. I met him through an ebay auction. He did a great job on it. VERY reasonable price compared to everyone else out there. Also i hear you with the $$$ part. I had alot of parts from last year and bought a bunch with the income tax this year.
