Few changes before winter sleep

I have done few things before covering my bobber for winter sleep:

- M-blaze pin indicators by Motogadget
- Front lamp/speedo customized by Twinton
- Bates rear light
- Fehling wide bar 90cm
- Seat bucket coloured in morello red
- Lifting tank to get straight line from tail to top

Nice! Some interesting turn indicators.

I like the shape of the bar. How much does that change the feel of maneuvering and does it bring the bar ends a little closer to you?

Loving the wider bars and the small indicators. Can you see the speedo ok?

Love the bars Did you manage not to extend any cables and where did you get the bars from?
Also the headlight is something i would like to look into.

I was thrown back to my earlier days of riding one of my motocross bikes. The wider it is, the easier is the stearing at low speed into curves, much better than with original handlebar

iBobber, I was contemplating doing the same to my seat's pan but opted for black, I didn't think that my powder coater could match the fuel tank color. I like what you did to your Bobber, especially the headlight.

Thanks, yes the headlight is very unique. Thomas from Twinton Motorcycles, Germany, is building them in many hours of handcraft

That is sweeeet! I love everything you did except possibly raising the tank? I would have to see more pics and what was the reason for wanting a straight line, I don't believe they were like that back in the day, is it a personal thing?

I can show you a metamorphosis, to see what it means, lifting the tank for a straighter line.
