"I love the look of the rigid 60s bobber/choppers. But we have a lot of restrictions in my country for example we can't build a bike from scratch because they will not allow the bike to be registered legally. Changing your frame is also illegal.…"
Yes, there are plenty of hard-tail purist (elitist?) who view soft-tails with utter contempt, possibly with good reason... Still, the old saying, "Chop what you got!", should, or could, be applied universally. If I had greater…"

Still, the old saying, "Chop what you got!", should, or could, be applied universally. If I had greater financial resources I would love to build a hard-tail chopper/bobber, but I can be satisfied with changing up what I already have and be very thankful that I am fortunate enough to have it! I see that you have begun acquiring the parts for your next build. If you remain active at this website I would love to watch your vision develop, but if you are like me it could be years in the process... No hurry, it's more important to enjoy the ride than to arrive at the destination, after all, destinations are only momentary phenomena as the journey continues on! I really dig your gas tank graphic. Way cooler than skulls and crossbones and unlike anything I have ever seen before, does it have any particular significance (cultural or otherwise) than just being really attractive graphic design, which has sufficient value in itself. Just today I ordered as gas tank very similar, if not the same, as yours. Thanks for making pictures of your bike available, as they gave me the clear image that has provided me the assurance I needed to make the purchase. I had been thinking about it already, but when I came upon your photos I was able to actually see what it would look like. Cool enough for me to follow your lead! Believe me, I'll give credit to, "Some Kat in Malaysia!" as being the source of my inspiration. In time I hope to be able to add photos of my bike and make a contribution to "The Culture" as you have already done. Thanks Again!
