Nasty, hope you came out of that particular adjustment ok.

Love colour of your Bobber though - what paint code/name is that? Also, the hand painted Triumph logo is sweeeeet.

Admit it... you were looking for an excuse to upgrade the front end. Inverted forks would be killer! Love your bike color. Hope you’re okay!

Really sweet paint color and logo. I would think about moving that tire away from the radiator though. Since you're posting it with a little tongue in cheek, I assume you're ok or hope you will be.

Hey @Siggs, let us know how you are!

Now guys, assuming Siggs is OK, he's going to need our help and advice on rebuilding that front end. I don't think anyone on the forum has put a new front end on their Bob (speak up if you have). What do we think would make a great front end for a custom Bobber?

Thanks all for the concern and well wishes!

Some lady in a subaru did a u turn from the shoulder of a four-lane road, during rush hour no less. A guy in a truck had stopped in the right lane to let her in, which blocked vision for both of us (truck also boxed me in), so I didn’t see her till she was directly in front of me. Crappy illustration attached.

Thankfully I sensed something off about the situation as I approached and I managed to scrub speed to about 15-20mph before I hit the side of her car. My boys took it the hardest when I flew into the gas tank :crying: Grateful it wasn’t worse, no broken bones!

Bike is at the dealer now for estimates, hoping it isnt too bad.

Thanks! I went with porsche nardo grey. Tank is pretty banged up, will need to be redone. Maybe adding a black racing stripe, thoughts??

I hadn’t even thought of that! Wonder what my options are. Are there even inverted forks that fit the bobber black??
