    Introduction, build post, and a question

    I blame the Brothers Fong. One of the first modded XS's I had ever seen was a Fong Brothers bike and I immediately fell in love. While the plates aren't as attractive as they could be, I think they fill that negative space well and balance out the front and back of the bike. The jaw dropping...

    Introduction, build post, and a question

    Been a while. Finally got my frame welded. My buddy Dave at Copperhead Customs down the road hooked me up. I like knowing someone with more experience, welded the critical pieces. Piece of mind I guess. Left the bottoms of the ugly plates unwelded, because I'm not sure how I want them to...

    My on the cheap bobber build thread.

    Johnt3, I am sorry to hear about your stepmother. I hope things get better for you and your family in the coming months. Cancer is a terrible disease. Your bike is looking great, it will be interesting to see what the total amount spent was when you get done with it.

    Introduction, build post, and a question

    Thanks for the tip Paulrxs650, I was looking at the instructions but they were pretty dark on the print out. I worked the bottom a little more which allowed me to curve the tail up slightly. How is it looking now? The top mount sits much closer to the wrap around but they still don't touch the...
