Added more pics of the build on page 3!
I have been working on this bad boy for about a year and this website has been so helpful. I just wanted to say thanks to everyone here and I hope to see you on the road. From Ft. Irwin CA, Thank You!

I am in no way a fan of the rat bikes or bobbers, but looks like you took pride in the build and it looks really good. :pepper: CONGRADS and enjoy that thang.


Did I just say that?:notworthy


Oh, Welcome to the Vulcan madness. Ride safe!

Welcome to the site. While the style may not be to my preference, you did really clean work. If you did an ear shave it would really clean it up, since it gets rid of those airboxes.

Thanks! Yep, that's my next task. Just need to find the time. I retire in December so I will really get to enjoy this thing.

I love the stripe on the tank. Fully custom paint, or vinyl? Either way, I really like it.

Fully custom paint from bare metal to this with about 5 different types of rust-Olium spray paint :)

Pretty slick! I have the same mirrors on mine. Personally I think the ears look great on there. Your bike has just the right balance of chrome and paint. I'd run a small rear fender but that's because of the ****ty ****ty roads around here that collect water.

I'd also like to say thanks for your service. Keep up the fine work.

i was thinking that the front fender would be more important cause i have road with out one and when you hit a wet spot the bike will throw the water straight up and you ride right into it lol

but thats a great looking bobber if i was to change anything besides adding a fender it would be putting some 12 inch apes on but im not a fan of low bars

but like i said it looks great

Hot damn. That's a slick looking bobber! What exhaust do you have running in that beast?

I'm thinking after this season, I'm going to turn my 750 into a bobber & buy a bigger bike for my lady & I to take on road trips.

I made the exhaust with pieces bought from autozone bolted and clamped togethe, then wrapped with white exhaust fiber. Now that I have the shape I can bring it to an exhaust shop have it reproduced with mandrel bends then dipped in Chrome. Or maybe just keep it like it is :) Thanks everyone for the compliments!

Throttle stop cable

Anyone know where I can find a throttle stop cable? I broke mine with the throttle way to high and now have to pull the carbs just to get to it.. Any other suggestions or discussion links would be awesome. Thanks in advance.
