Bobber build 101
06/27/08 at 11:31:51
 
Ok all you bobber fans gather around,this is for you.I will put how to's and pics as I go along.If there are any questions please let me know,and we will start a thread in R.S.D.Ok with the infamous words from Trick My Truck....let's tear down.
This is after the first trip to the carwash

I don't think I need to show how to remove seat,and gastank.
To remove rear fender,pegs,etc.Remove rear wheel.Disconnect any electrical plugs to the rear fender area,and unbolt starter solenoid.From underneath there are 4 bolts that hold the entire rear fender assembly to the frame,including side rails(sissy bar,struts)see pic.

To remove belt guards,ther are 5 mounting points.2 at the very front of the swingarm,2 about a 1/3 of the way back(1 on top,1on bottom)and 1 at shock mount.

After about 2-3 hours in the garage.


Now back to the carwash for the second time.Thet's it so far,for day 1

Rear fender(trailer fender) cut to length.This is for an un modified frame.I will probably be cutting the seat horns off of the frame on this build thus eliminating the top bolt holes for this style fender mounting.I will make fender struts/sissybar for it.

It's going down to the bare frame,getting sandblasted,and painted.

This is how bad everything is looking,even the swingarm doesn't want to move.

It is down to a bare frame now,just waiting on parts to show up.The gas tank in the pics is the one I bought.The mounting setup is a nice setup it is two straps you weld/bolt on.Has rubber grommets that four bolts go through,and bolt the tank on from the bottom.Once I get it welded on,and the exhaust mounting figured out the frame will get sent to be sandblasted.
I am keeping the frame stock,again(I think).

I'll probably weld a patch over it in the front.That'll give me a place to hide some of the electrics.

The struts are made from solid 1" round bar.9/16" holes,9 1/2" on center.Solid stock might be overkill,but I had some,and it worked on the first one,so I'm sticking with it.
For the metal seatpan,most people either glue the foam,and upholstery on or rivet/screw it on.For what they cost sometimes it's just cheaper to buy a seat.The black one on the purple bike was around 40 bucks,the metalflake seat I'm putting on this build was around 125 bucks.

The fender is from Northern Tool,part # 1263.It's a little wide for the 140 tire,but not too bad.A 150 looks good with it.
Here is the q&a thread I had started before on the build.
