PostSubject: my first bobber   Wed Sep 29, 2010 9:45 am

gday all!!

im matthew from the piarere area 20 mins south of cambridge.
my dream for a long time has been to build a bobber, ive own a few crusiers in the past and each one ive wanted just to rip off the seat and back guard and paint it all matt black, but never been game enough till i picked up this 2008 suzuki s40 about 2 weeks ago
i took it for a ride brought it back to the house.. moved the beds out of the spare bedroom and turned it into my bobber making room.
its been fun working on it, but now i want a real project and build one from scratch but with a budget,
my most funny moment was last night i put the tank back on to start it up and she wouldnt go!!! after almost a hour of thinking what could be wrong.( the motor has only done 4500kms) i realized when i stuck a pen up the fuel line to stop the flow the little plastic end of the pen fell out and blocked the line...ha ha haha
well thats it from me... this is a great site
this is what she looked like when i got her




this is her now!!



i hope this works

Hey Matt. Welcome to Grease Monkeys. Post some pics of your bike. We haven't had new bike pics for a while. I built a Suzuki cafe racer in my kids bedroom once. My wife wasn't pleased. Now she's an ex-wife and everybody's happy.

Welcome Matt.
Lookin good. Those bikes turn into bobbers real nice, Suzuki could sell a lot more if they would put them out like that!
I like the way you turned the risers around - good idea
