    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?
  6. Sal Raciti
    is your rear fender attached to the frame or the hub of the wheel?
    1. bjmudryk
      Actually the rear fender is attached to the swing arm. Whole thing moves as one. 1/2" gap between tire and fender

    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.
    1. bjmudryk
      Thanks Sal. I mounted my fender to the swing arm. All moves as one.

    How did you choose your handle bar controls? I am having a hard time finding some that will work for my 82 750 build?
    1. bjmudryk
      I had to buy longer cables. 6" I believe. Got them from Bike Bandit

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