Genuine post war bobber style; stock 1940’s American V-Twin motorcycle. Extra speed came from simple weight reduction. Riders stripped these motorcycles of all “non-essential” parts such as large fenders, saddlebags, trim and so forth. Light weight “bobbed” fenders were fabricated from junk yard spare tire covers for a couple of bucks.

Men & women rode these motorcycles in the 50’s & 60’s. No reason you can’t too with some practice & focus.

Roll up on this genuine vintage bobber and you make a statement.
