I like the bobbers. That will be my next project.

Looks like whatever you decide to do, it'll turn out nice. Good looking bikes!

Ya gotta put a shorty rear fender on it though....else its looks "lacking".....and half finished....

Suggestion....Tractor Supply sells trailer fenders cheap....slap one on, cut to length, and yer done....but the bare rear tire thing dont cut it in my book....looks like sheit IMO....takes away from the rest.....

Take a lookie here....local boys to me... http://www.orangecountybobbers.com/bikes

Saw the fenders at Tractor Supply... but decided to go no fender look on the rears. I might do the rear fender this time around. Thanks for the honest opinion, which I'm totally cool with. You know what they say, "to each its own". lol

As of today... Rode it for a few miles and everything seems to be good to go.





But, I do have to let it go. Wife's suv is having some issues and need a spare care.

Ended up selling it today for only $900. Needed to get some $$$s and fix the wife's SUV. Shucks! I'm going to miss it.
