Bobber Project

Bobber project cheap !...this bike, after strippin it, screams fer it !...single wishbone frame and belt drive too....tank and all electrics included.
I'll let the whole shootin match go fer $300 or less (the total of parts on Ebay come to around $500, but I cant do Ebay)....local pickup only.

What is it Wolfie?
Front wheel and forks look like our vn750. Also the rear shocks and sidestand mounting boss, so I guess it to be a Kawi maybe?
But what model? and what displacement?

Im gonna yank the engine (3 bolts), and cut off all the extra tabs fer the junk. The rear axle can come up about 5 ", then ya just extend the same line of the frame down to the swingarm. Instant rigid. Add a sissy/strut setup then to hold the rear fender, and its almost done. Lowering will increase the rake some too.
Besides the frame, engine and drive, its almost the same as ours. Has a 3gal tank with same gas cap and the controls, M/C, and dash are same, except the EN had a mech drive tach. Fork tubes are smaller diameter, but could be a direct swap if you used the whole triple tree...the neck is the same.

Exactly the same length as ours...all dimensions same, besides tube diameter.
And if I had an extra $100-125...Id jump on this....
