    Default Imaginary Bobber Project

    Asslam-o-Alaikum:

    Well, iam not being a big modder. But its my true fantasy to make a custom bobber for myself. May be one day iam able to afford such expense.

    For the time being lets fantasize it !! Using all the available resources in Pakistan. This thread may act as a database for all those who are willing to work on such project.

    I know there are some really talented guru's out there who can share there knowledge as far as working and diagramatic issues are concerned.

    I will use this database then to start working on bobber project. We will be working in a clockwise manner each of the item will be discussed until it may get finalised.

    So start sharing views of frame needed for making a bobber bike. Whats the best pick from local bike chasis or should i get it custom made. Your inputs are highly appreciated..

    Thats the T-bone frame you're lookin at. Honda CD175 has a similar frame btw. I know because the frame and inspiration pictures you posted up here have also been discussed on Honda CD175 Bobber Project......Thats my project......and fortunately its not imaginary.......but on a halt though....will resume work in 2 months or so

    there are a lot of magician in lahore who can do that for you but you will have to source proper material for it... metal type pipes of same gauge as in blue print and other metal stuff... which is almost impossible.. or else we have links in steel mill to get one specially forged for the project..

    hhahahaha Raja Rental! Give me 2 months to sort things out. I will take time off from work to finish this project. That would be my treat for work hard now.

    Original Stuff
    I know you haven't copied mine. The inspirational picture you used is one of the best light weight bobber you can find. everything about that Bobber is just right.

    Mistakes I made
    Well as far as the mistakes are concerned I'am not very far ahead in the project so fortunately there isnt any mistakes yet that I can talk of. I research everything before I go into action so, I chose the CD175 for its weirdly strong frame.

    Why I chose CD175 Frame
    The metal used in CD175 frame is really good. But a T-bone frame comes with its own challenges. You have to work within the confinements of the frame. You cant fit a very large engine in a CD175 frame as the engine is entrapped inside the frame from 4 sides (Top, bottom, front and back).

    Engine Options for CD175 Frame (Why I chose SR250)
    I did some measurements, for the CD175 frame you can install, CM250 engine or an XL180 without any alterations. However I choose a SR250 engine. As its a single cylinder engine, its is a good 47 cm high. As my chassis already needed some rust repairs so I opted for the SR250, had to trim and adjust the frame from the top and bottom to compensate for the bigger engine. But is was a good move. The engine is the focal point of a bobber, an SR250 engine on CD175 frame was snug fit, there aint any gaps and it looks really cool.

    Best Chassis for Bobber Project
    I think if one is planning a bobber project than my advice would be to go for an Hero RF125. Its basically a clone of Suzuki GN250 and has a lot of room in the frame to handle alterations and bigger engine. Also its back end can accommodate a decent size rear tyre. I think a 120mm wide tyre will fit in easily. So as it Chinese it will become a nice and cheap platform. junaidakhtar01 chose it for a reason for his bobber project. Actually RF125 was my second choice after a CD175 frame as I really like the Tbone frame.

    I dont think thats possible, buy a cheap frame of any ancient 2 stroke bike. It would be cheap and you can use it as a platform.
