there ya go. Take that motor and put it in a hardtail frame with a peanut tank. Instant bobber. That you can still get alot of parts for since the motor has been the same from 89 -2007.

now it's blue ... and I'm adapting suzuki brakes (maybe do some "parade" racing later?)
Matching my '44 chief..

looks a little bit dull without decals..
I may go back to silver paint later, but then it will be a full airbrush design.
Now I just want to start riding the bike, and maybe turn it into a showbike later.. I painted the bike in the garage..so it was cheap:)
It's more flashy with the blue color though(and it's my favourite color), but it also looked very nice in silver.. before the gas tank started leaking.

I'm in the process of building a bobber. I should have the bases covered between this one and the cafe racer. Both are Yamaha XS650's.

Sort of a bobber, sort of not, this Indian was at a recent vintage bike event in Phoenix. So many cool features about it like the two six-shooters welded up as highway pegs.



More photos here.
