Welcome,

The 650 is a great bike. lots of info here, and some great people. I have seen some sweet bobbers made from the 650. I have been thinking about it myself, however I think I am going to wait until I have anothr bike in the garage. Ride safe, and I would't worry to much about the HD.

Welcome to the group!

Several great build threads going re 650 bobber projects - so enjoy.

Some jerks here really demand pics of your bike before they pass judgement on members (I think I'm in that group :-)

thanks fellas...


bevo, i voted for bike of the year... wasn't an easy choice, but i went with what i liked.

Miesha, i always like sharing...

this is my Road King Custom(pic was taken in previous owners garage):



and this is my vstar custom that i just picked up a couple of weeks ago(pic pulled from seller):



and here they are in my garage... first pic is of the vstar during the conversion... still needs bars, grips, paint on rear fender, etc. and i just learned that i need to replace the neutral switch o-ring b/c it is leaking(hence the piece of wood under it). Second pic is of both of them.








and if you guessed my favorite color is blue... you guessed correct.
