    Finally, someone bobbed out a bike and didn't just flat black everything.

    it looks like the frame, doesn't the tire hit the fender when you go over bumps?
  3. Sal Raciti
    is your rear fender attached to the frame or the hub of the wheel?

    hello, nice bike, so I have the same bike and i chopped the rear off. i kept the springs so I'm having an issue with my tire hitting the fender and seat when the springs compress.

    How did you choose your handle bar controls? I am having a hard time finding some that will work for my 82 750 build?

    Can you point me toward some larger tires that will fit this bike stock with no modifications? as i am building a bobber from the same bike looking for a little fatter rear tire and a nice meaty front

      Hey Brandon...unfortunately because of the gear drive swingarm, the largest you can go is a 130.

    Your bike looks amazing I'm in the process of building mine into a bobber as this is my first bike I've ever owned and moddified I had some questions
    1. bjmudryk
      Hey tater...thank you so much. This is my first bike too. My friends keep telling me that I'm outta my mind for doing it instead of just buying a rider. But I've always been one of those don't ever tell me it can't be done kinda guys, because I'll prove ya wrong...lol
