Scoop did a hardtail chop that even impressed me. Not an easy task.

Hey Mike, is the 1200.00 US bills or Euros? If its US I'd say buy it no matter what. I got my 93 with 15k on the clock for 2500 US and sold it for 2k. You're lookin' at a 94 with only 5400 on the clock for 1200. Snag it!!

I did a bob job on mine... check out the photos in my gallery...

I think it turned out pretty decent, and it was all very easy to do, mostly cosmetic.

I would classify your Bob more as a Brat... Bobbers are hardtailed, while Brats retain a rear suspension.

Hello all, im new here but for my 94 750 i find its the best place for info. (sorry too deviate form the thread) but i was wondering. what is the OEM headlamp number. I have one of those cool blues in it. It was there when I bought it. I was riding last night and it wasnt very bright soo i flipped up the high beam. Well it just got dimmer. Then i pulled out my headlamp from my xs650 and plugged that one in, switched it and both fillaments seem to work fine. Ergo i need a new balb. how ever theres no number on it thanks mike
