Are you thinking about building out a Honda Shadow VLX Bobber? It can be done! I just saw Mike’s thread on the Honda Shadow forum about his Shadow Bobber/Rat Bike. He has done an incredible job!
The bike is almost exactly what I am going for from the handle bars to the wiring. I even like the paint job.
On the other hand, the welding looks pretty crappy (at least in the pictures), and I’m not too sure about some of the makeshift parts he’s using. Then again, that’s what making a bobber is about—using what you have to get the best performance possible.
