Picked her up this afternoon (UK time) and the declutter begins.
Screen off rear back rest off. Need a rack then the rear seat and pegs will go.

Cheers boys if I never got addicted to all the bikes in my past I would be minted and possibly a boring git lol.
Back in mid 90's I even managed a six page spread in Performance bikes :)

BP03 black is so yestertday ;-)

Boob I hate to think the cost of posting it from the UK over the pond.
One of my previous slight addictions from some 12 years back lol

The strip down continues, rear seat, rear pegs,and tank stickers. Adjusted the gear lever, rear brake lever and bars to suit my stature.

Hi possibly no, on first glance it would seem to involve removing cutting of the rear frame rails which if and when I move the bike on halves the buyer market.

Next on the cards is processor, pipes and air kit.

if you're worried about affecting it's later sell price, then don't modify anything. leave it 100% stock. otherwise, do to it whatever you want and don't worry about getting rid of it at a later date or you might as well just sell it now.

Yeah point taken, I googled pics for 950 bobber not to many out there and from what I saw it was just down to a single seat n the plate on the side, rear indis moved to muddy.
That's already on the cards. Do not see any reason to change the rear muddy as unlike the last bike I bobberd the top of the muddy doesn't look like it was hand beaten by Stevie Wonder.

One thing to keep in mind...... is that even if you cut something off, you can always weld it back on.

Very true Mick would have to be bloody good welding if the next thing they had to support was some girl weighing the same as Macdonalds daily burgersales.

Valves done purring like a kitten. Also took the chance to swap the rear chrome fender braces for black and lost the chrome plastic on the tank.
