Saw this seat on a Bobber forum
            I saw one of these a few days ago on a Bobber forum, and when the guy said where he got it, I said Haaay, I have one of those. I went to my storage today and got mine. It comes from a vintage exercise bike, with a 1 horse motor and really cool handle bars. I would love to be able to fabricate a clamp so I could use the handle bars. Anyways, this seat is a perfect fit on my bottom, and is really cool. Super heavy chrome like on an old Buick bumper from the 50's. I'll have to make a plate for the seat springs, and the seat front bracket, but that's an easy do. I'll post pictures in progress. I'm in the process of converting my 2006 1100 Classic into a Bobber, and this seat is going on for sure.

Thanks, the hardest part is going to commit to cutting the fender supports off. Can't go back after that. I just wish I could find some reasonably priced Bobber fenders.

Use the front fender ...
I've tried 2 different approaches ...
I liked both but the simplest was to use the front fender ...

I love the bobber look. My father in law used to build choppers. He welded in extra struts on his chopper with a bobbed fender and used a suction cup pillion pad. The fender hugs the rear tire well and only covers the top, but that's on a frame up custom build. I don't see why you wouldn't be able to weld up something just in case you wanted to bring a passenger.

Edit. Just realized how old this thread was. Hope the build went well.

Yes, it's totally doable
But I wouldn't want to be the passenger seating there :)
