I bought this bike with the intentions of turning it into a bobber, it has sat in the garage for 2 weeks due to work but today I started bolting it together as it came in boxes, I just wanted to know what was there and if I need anything and what parts I don't need. The first photo was the inspiration for the bike the next three are as it stands now. I intend to hard tail it and add a single sprung seat.
All feedback welcome, any ideas or advice also welcome.
Today I have managed to remove the rear subframe, I then tacked a couple of lengths of angle from the frame to the swing arm so I can check out the ride height. Tomorrow I will get some pictures and work out the length of pipe required to build the rigid rear end :tup: Things are progressing rather well and hopefully I can get the back end sorted by the weekend then strip the bike and rub it down ready for some primer and some black hammerite on the frame. :)
awesome lil bike.... i wanted to do a bratstyle from a suzuki gn 125 i had..
This is where I got to yesterday, bit more today if time allows. Measure up for the length of pipe required today :)
Have you changed the angle of the top tube of the frame? The tank looks like it's leaning back more in the latest pics. Perhaps it's just the camera angle.
Anyway, cool little project.
Not touched the top tube angle at all, the bike just sits lower at the back end giving the impression of a racked front.
I tacked some tubes on today to give the overall effect, these will be removed and replaced with thicker wall and slightly larger diameter tube but it gives a rough idea of what it will look like. What do you think of the number plate position?
