Duel Seat Bobber!!!

As a general rule I would never criticise anyone else's mods, as Triumph say 'Go Your Own Way' but this has to be the exception to that rule...I've got to ask WHY???

For those of sensitive dispersion don't watch this video, as it will likely upset you!

Looks like he should have got a Speedmaster.

The rear end looks to have been replace with something resembling a Speedy rear.

Cheerio,

He should have got ANYTHING rather than butcher a Bobber like that.
But to each their own and if he’s happy, then that’s what really matters.

Truthfully, I’d be more concerned for his passenger’s safety; Bobbers are not built for two. Heck, I had to change all the suspension & brakes just for it to be able to handle me !

Hmmm 🤔🤔. Well, not something I would ever do. Seems to defeat the whole point of buying a bobber. I just love the single raised seat with the hidden rear shock, stripped down aesthetic to bare essentials. Since I do almost all my rides solo, I also appreciate never having to make excuses for why I can’t accommodate a passenger. Then again, it’s not my bike, it’s his.

Whoever engineered it has a very mechanical mind.

Too bad he forgot to wind it up before inventing this abortion.

Oh god. Oh god, oh god, oh god. This is fucking hideous. If you wanted that, why not go Sportster 1200? It ALREADY has a hard tail that has that exact seat.



Imagine having this and anything but a hard tail and hitting a rough road. Imagine having this, and even if it moved, having the stock rear mono shock. I can support a lot of stuff, but this is like buying a 9 ton John Deer hay bailer for your Prius or Smart car. You're fucking your **** up for no point, fam.

So long, and thanks for all the fish!
