I bobbed a Suzuki S40 Boulevard. last winter. I have it for sale on E-bey right now. It was a fun project and even more fun to ride. But I bought a Kawasaki Concours 14 last June and don't have time to ride the Suzuki like it needs tobe ridden.
Well, the BlueCollarBobbers kit arrived. It required a little customization to make it work, not sure what's up with that as it's supposed to be a bolt on, but it's no biggie. For the money, this is top notch stuff here. They do a FANTASTIC job of providing top quality parts! They provide a bracket that goes all the way across, but the swingarm was hitting it under full compression, and it was in the way of my fender bracket. After studying it and sleeping on it, I just took the top brace off (I can't see why it's needed) and then cut the side brackets back some. I don't think I've lost a thing in the strength department. Had to add some fender washers and longer bolts under the springs, and there's a tapped aluminum bar stock that goes under the front mounting point that was hitting the shock, had to clearance that a bit. Otherwise, good to go. Doing bodywork on the tank and fender now.....
Tins in stock and ready to paint for most late model cruisers!
