This Cafe Rider project was built on a Brass Balls Bobber, itself a unique motorcycle. However, that didn't stop us from taking on this project and the result is a beautiful machine with classic looks and a few custom touches that helps to forge and strengthen the bond between this motorcycle and it's owner.
The front and rear fenders from fabricated in-house from steel. Moving up, a wider tracker handlebar allows more rider control, while widening the profile of the Bobber. Lighting duties up front are taken care of by a five-inch headlight highlighted by a custom brass bezel and sandwiched between LED turn signals. Gauges are limited to just one - a mini Motoscope speedometer so that the rider can keep an eye on speed.
Custom made brake and clutch levers allow for better reach and grip, while a hydraulic conversation for the front brake does away with the traditional cable system, while improving ergonomics. Additionally, control switches are mounted directly on the handlebar for ease of use.
A custom made fuel tank and slimmer seat basket accentuate the Bobber's profile, while wider Coker whitewalls cement the classic aesthetic present throughout. A custom-built straight-through exhaust ensures that this bike has plenty of bark to match its bite, while a lithium battery provides more cranking amperage for easier starts.
Sometimes, as in the case of this Bobber, the wheel does not need to be reinvented, especially when it's encased in whitewall tires.
Be original, be free.
