My Blobber

Got my paintwork back on
Gave it & my 994 Bonnie a ride out, blobber couldn't catch the bonnie when we were giving it large.

The paintjob on the T120 tank really makes it work with the Bobber. Well done!

Why did the Bonnie beat the Bobber? better braking? handling?

Your bike and your call, of course, but I'd put the faux gearbox cover back on sharpish :-)

And I will, just as soon as it comes back from being nickel plated, along with the dummy air cleaners, timing & primary covers.

Cheers
The Bonnie is a bit special, 100hp, handmade lightweight chromemoly frame, ali tins, light wheels, USD forks, radial brakes ect.
So speed, accel, handling & braking the blobber came second, but it did do pretty well for what it is.
Even though the Bonnie has the edge, I was riding my favourite bike, the Blob, looking & feeling real good.

great paint job!

can i ask what headlamp brackets are you using? (that also is the larger 7" lamp housing too?).
i've upgraded to the larger headlamp but as most of us have are the fork "headlamp-ears" mounts.

Old style headlight mounting was made for me by Tony Taysom at Lamb engineering, simply bolts on to original frame mounting.
