So I picked up this semi-complete vn750 bobber project for $450. 16k miles. Clean Fl title too!
The guy works at a HD dealership and was riding it back and forth until he bought a slightly used HD bike. Tank was rusty inside so he did a flip cut to sand blast the inside.
When i first brought it to the shop:
Did some welding/brazing on the tank, epoxy primed it, filled it, sealed it, and then KBS tank sealed the inside.
The rear had been chopped and hard-tailed with bars for struts... not my style:
So I cut that mess out and added new tubes:
I tig welded up some exhaust, tubes aren't cut to length yet.
I've earshaved it, coastered it, 142 mains, 42 pilots, and all "non-essential" wiring was removed.
Seat is still not in it's final spot.... I made provisions to be able to adjust it. I've also made a custom battery box, and an under seat storage compartment. Trailer fender from TSC helped out a bunch.
