    I have been toying with the idea of building a bobber for a few years now, really like the look and style of the one below but what bike to start with??

    Nice bobber, really you could start with pretty much anything you like but a Triumph is a good start :smile:

    Well that's what I was thinking, wouldn't need too much of the standard triumph stuff apart from the frame & engine, I have had a few searches saved on ebay, I need to find one sat dismantled in boxes somewhere.

    A really good mate of mine is into them in a big way, so if you want to chat to him I could put you in touch...
