Note About the Pix: Many of the pix featured on this page come from "open source" places like eBay, Craigslist, etc.  The rest are pix of bobbers that people have sent me and what I have seen locally. Although it has never happened, if a picture of YOUR bobber ends up here and you're not cool with it, please zap me some mail and I'll promptly take it down. I don't make a dime off of this site, and I'm not here to rip anybody off... I'm only here to showcase some cool bobbers and maybe give home builders an idea or two. Thanks and enjoy the collection!

>> Bobber of the Month <<

     (As told to me by old bikers now gone)... In the old days, back when the air was still fresh and gas was less then thirty cents per gallon, any bike sporting all of the factory goodies such as fenders, spotlights, saddlebags and all of the associated yee yaa was considered a "Garbage Wagon" by those who participated in flat-track, enduro, or street racing. To increase speed and performance, riders would remove, or "bob" parts from their bikes which weren't absolutely necessary for its operation. Fenders, saddlebags, spotlights and the assorted chrome goodies were removed leaving essentially an engine, two wheels and a frame... THIS is a "Bobber" (or more precisely, a "bob job"). Contrasting the bobber is the "chopper", a movement which began as a bobber (with bits and pieces "chopped" off) but over time experienced a metamorphosis from a more practical racing machine to a less practical (and poorer performing) embodiment of a motorcycle more bent on making a statement than winning a race (Apes and extended forks make diving into a corner at speed just a little bit more hairy) = ). Both choppers and bobbers owe their history to those first riders who knew that big engines and less weight equaled BIG smiles. NOW, I recently read an article (below) by one of the most famous chopper builders EVER who pretty much says that MY definition of a bobber is BULLSHIT. = ) I don't mind... Sugar Bear is THE MAN !
