Storage on a bobber? That sounds like the guy that traded in his F250 for a Chevy Volt because he didn't like the gas mileage on his truck. After a week or two he was complaining about not having enough room to haul things because there was no cargo bed on the Volt. lol Sometimes you just can't have your cake and eat it too but you can increase what you are able to carry on the bobber without changing it into a cruiser or touring model. As mentioned already, a bedroll hung from the forks or bars is good and if you put that into a compression bag there are all kinds of things you can carry including your choice of "water" with the blanket or sleeping bag used for added insulation. Having it on the front keeps it in sight so there isn't a silent drop along the road. A tool bag roll is great also and easy to make yourself with potential room for additional items such as cell phone chargers or what ever. This can be hung from the rear as the weight will make enough noise if it falls unless your pipes are exceptionally loud. With these you can keep with the bobber style of eliminating most everything not necessary to make it go or stop. Good luck remember to post more pictures when you decide how you are going to proceed.
and always remember, "Ride until you rot!"
