next round of upgrade .. and looking for advice

hi guys ,

after riding my bobber since april ..it was time to go for the next round of update

my original thread after first round of upgrade :
https://www.triumphbobberforum.com/f...me-photos.html


this time .. airbox delete and frame mounted asymmetrical fog light on bottom right side of the frame

i am looking for advice :

would love to loose the center stop light i really dislike it
and would love to keep the same style/size of turn signal ( would need to be dual function to include stops )

any pointer in the right direction would be welcome

If you want to keep the long fender you could do something similar to what I’ve done (prior to adding the taillight) but throw on the larger Rizoma iRides or something like that. Although you’d have to move the license plate back up to the fender so you may not like that. Not sure how to do it otherwise, I’ll look around while I’m bored watching football and see what I find, I like the idea.

If you want to go short fender the OEM fender is just that, two dual multi functions.

Looks good. What fog light is that? Was it easy to mount on the frame?

I really like your rear lights setup..would have to check that.. but I want to keep my offset side stop light with license plate

rogan.mcgillis
Thanks... yeaaahhh the plate and side stop light have to stay :-)

‘Looking great! Is that a Statement seat?”

Yes it is, I just did re dye the leather to uniform the color between straps, seat and side bag

So Carpy's bracket fits the Bobber frame with no trouble? Is there a reason you didn't use his fog light as well? I've always liked it (though it's not cheap of course).


Also, sorry to bother you, but any chance of a closer up pic of the fog light? Thanks!
