Bobber

Anyone on here have build a bobber? I was thinking of getting a Virago not sure if I want a 750 or 1100 and having some fun with it...

Is there anything I should know before proceeding with this project?

Thanks

If you find a good bobber, you won't need Viagra.

Oh wait I read that wrong

should be able to find a 600 shadow from 88-94 for around a grand if not less fairly easily. they pretty much fly under the radar because people think it's just a lil 600 and is weak. this isnt true as i've taken on many honda 750 shadow aces/aeros and won with bike lengths to spare.
