If you aren't a pygmy and that means shorter than me. That Bike looks pretty good as is. I would leave the shocks on it and if you want it lower either make a set of lowering brackets for the bottom of the shocks, there is a pattern on here some where on how to make them. It moves them back a couple of inches on the bottom and lowers it an inch or more.
You know what you want but I'd also go to tractor supply and buy a trailer fender and cut it to length and mount it to the swing arm front and rear close to the tire and paint it black too.
I'm not a big Bobber fan but that black bike and white seat with the white wheels looks sharp!

|Onelife5||Yeah that is what I wanted to here, that set up he has looks a little weak. Their is better material to use than that. I already have the bike lowered with the springs on. I just need to do something with the meat that is left from the passenger seat. I will prob. Just round them out right above the shocks|

Looking at the photo, I don't like how the struts are mounted and the size of tubing used there. Smashing the ends to bolt them like that creates a weak spot (4 of them to be exact)
I would have used heavier bar for the struts or left the tubes round and capped them....welding in bushings for the bolt.
Those just look like you'd hit a pothole and they would bend.
Personally is leave the shocks on, like I did here:

|new rider 9984||if it were me i would drill the hole bigger than need be and put a solid piece of steel thru the hole and give it a 100% weld then drill a hole in that and tap the treads needed for the bolt that secures the strut|

|Onelife5||I know you did but it's hard to see from that picture, and you have your shocks still---I'm talking about If I go hard tail is it safe to chop it that close to the joint of the frame. See how low that guy chopped his. Obviously it can be done, I just want to know if drilling a new hole into the frame near that joint to install the strut, would weaken that joint/weld?|
