I just bumped into this thread and it was so interesting that read through each and every post. Ur Bobber project turned out fabulous. It seems like a clean design with true old school Bobber traits.

Couple of questions:
- By how many inches did u extend the swing arm? I'm guessing 4-5 inches?
- How is the performance of the bike with such fat tires and extended swing arm. Does it feel dragged? Is there any noticeable decrease in power/acceleration? Does it feel sluggish?
- How about handling? The extended length of the bike might make it tougher at cornering and the turning would be longer I believe. Do you see that a deterrent factor for daily riding?

Thanks

thanks !! the performance is pretty good for the cafe racer. the rear tire is 140 and the front is 120 so they are not really that fat. for the bobber yes they are fat Avons 5.00-16 but surprisingly comfortable.

I just chanced on this thread and your work. Absolutely brilliant work Krish.

Just a couple of questions:

-I saw you have locally sourced the the Springer front end. I guess it has some maintenance things to be done periodically, any idea how its done?

-Also when you order it, what/which front end measurements are you supposed to give to the Springer manufacturer
