The Phantom Bobber Built
Well, today I got a bit of time to play with the bike...
What I really wanted to do was to be able to start it to see if it works..
The original bike was abandoned outside for 10 years with a bad engine.... The engine I got from eBay was supposed to be working but you never know with those things...
I rebuilt the carbs and JB welded the broken one and connected all wires etc to try to crank it up.
Here a video of the revival !

Front forks seals were shot ...
Took it apart for the seal replacement so since I had them apart I decided to powder coat the lower legs..
I love my HF little powder coater :)

With the holidays here I've not had enough time to work in the project...
But the little bits here and there always help sanity :)
This bike has giving a hard time with its front end...
-Completely rebuilt the forks.
-Full front brake rebuilt
-new tire
-powder coated controls, levers and risers.
-Installed zbars and did a complete internal wiring.
-modified the front fender (it was messed up cause by having the forks shot the fender would touch the pipe header and since its plastic it got melted... So I had to flip it and get creative)
