Haven't seen this before

I ran across this video today and decided I should share it, as I haven't seen this particular bike before. Not my cup of tea, but I'm sure some on here will really dig it. Definitely something completely different! What do you think?


Each one matters.

While I can appreciate every modification, the word “disproportionate” kind of jumps into my head.

  • I like the front forks and the tires.
  • I don't like the exhausts.
  • What is the rubber hose on the tank? Is it for fuel measurement?? I can see the fire that would result if the bike went down on its side and the hose got pulled off.

I'm all for everyone exploring there bike artistic side, so always applaud any such attempt.

That big front tyre does look kind of odd and as has been said somewhat out of proportion. Or maybe it's the camera angle?

Cheerio,

I think it is supposed to be a fuel level site glass. If you going to the trouble to put one in may as well be a glass tube and not a hose. On the other hand seems a bit dangerous. I would be worried that Mr Mayhem would make his appearance and cause all manner of problems. Otherwise I applaud the artistic endeavor.

It looks like a fuel level to me too. I can just see that thing getting snagged and pulled off. Fuel would be everywhere

The last thing the Bobber needs is a wooden seat. There are some interesting touches if one wants to be "different".

Finally! I have always believed that the Bobber's suspension and seat comfort needed to be substantially downgraded.
