2005 Roadster Custom Bobber (SOLD)
This bike originated as a 2005 Black Suzuki Boulevard S40 650 Single Cylinder as my Bobber Build Donor. The bike was purchased from a rider who used it occasionally. It was on the road and recently inspected when I bought it in October of 2015 with 6,000 miles.
To start the transformation to a Bison Customs bike I removed all the unnecessary parts and totally degreased the entire machine. While the bike was stripped down, I did a complete inspection of all parts and fasteners to assure everything was in good working order and secured properly.
Once complete, I began the design phase for the Bobber Build using the highlights of the Donor bike.
For this build, I decided to remove as much of the chrome as is because it was in such poor condition. My initial inspiration was to build this bike for myself. To complete the Bison Customs version of this bike, I purchased new parts to replace the OEM's removed:
Rugged, narrow solo bobber seat
LED Turn signals
Fiberglass Head pipe Wrap
Diamond Tread Plate Highlight Covers
Bobber-style rear fender and struts
Harley style fudgesickel kickstarter pedal
To compliment those additions, I added a Bell end Megaphone pipe with "appropriate" baffling.
The stock fuel tank was sanded down, prepped and painted with Textured Metallic Graphite finish. The final coat of Gloss Clear was used to seal and protect the surface.
This Roadster Custom was sold for $3800 in February of 2016.
