struts on the rear, solo seat and clubman bars.

Honda Rebel Bobber Project - In the Making
Jump to 9:15 for the Finished Results!
Engine Sound and Test Ride videos can be found on my channel. THANKS!
I've received many requests for more videos on my bobber so I decided to
upload this after considering how difficult it was for me and how I wished
people online can freakin' reply me how they did it because I had no
resources and had to figure it out on my own. This is 60+ gigs of videos
compiled over months. Heavily cut and edited to show the whole process in
the building of my bobber. I apologize for the choppy music in the
background. I truly hope this video helps!
LIVE HARD. RIDE HARDER! :)
This bike was completed in 2010.

I would be interested in any apprenticeship, job offerings, and interviews.

* 1976 CB500T engine
* 1979 CB750K front wheel
* 1981 (maybe?) CB900F front rotor
* 1978 CB750F forks, caliper, and front fender
* 1979 CX500D tank (polished, and clearcoated)
* Aftermarket Exhaust, no idea.
* 19" DID alloy front wheel
* 18" Akront alloy rear wheel (yeah, they don't match, but it still looks
* Stock seat pan, with the back of a CB450 tank riveted on, and polished.
* LED turnsignals and taillight.
* Lots of stainless bolts, spraypaint, grease, oil, and cursing.
Thanks for the comments!
