As mentioned in my earlier post, I think this is an interesting topic, which I have continued to ponder.
I know my bike has evolved beyond the Bobber concept and that is fine with me as I never bought the bike expecting it to be a 'bobber', as I saw the potential for the platform in creating my own vision.
However I do understand that for some any build can look a little OTT. I have certainly seen bikes that I've cringed at. I think, at least from my perspective, it's not about what you do (too much or too little) but how you do it. I tend not to like bikes that are just a miss-mash of parts with no rhyme or reason, this can easily be over done. But rather I think if a build has a specific goal or theme that the builder is attempting to create, then I find it hard to critique, as it's one builders 'vision'.
As for my own project, I have tried to keep this in mind, hence my continued efforts in regards attention to details; blacking out the bolts and in how the lines of the panniers run along the bike etc.
But as always 'each to their own' be it bike or opinions. But wanted to share some thoughts.
