Allright. I'll just open the end here then
This is my ride:

"Gulfster"

1993 vt600 bobber.
driven 34 000km
I have owned it 2 years now. Last winter completely rebuilt it from the scratch.
Sandblasted it and painted all the parts in my garage to a Steve McQueen kinda tribute color theme.
Bobbed frame.
Hardtailed back end and slammed to the ground as low as can get. (Yes. its horrible to drive long distances )
Front shocks lowered 7cm.
Custom rear fender.
Front fender removed.
Open pipes with wraps.
Stock intake system completely removed and added filtered velocity stacks.
Original fuel"pump" and all unnecessary dingledongels removed.
Carbs jetted with stage 3 kit.
Matte black painted engine.
Wide drag handlebar.
Old Finnish army leather bag serves as a toolbox.
+some brass bits scattered around the bike.


Bike is loud as hell. And pretty uncomfortable to ride but I still love it
Mainly using it as a town cruiser and a transportation device to the work and back.
Dont mind the chevy in the back. That's just prop for last summers shootings...

And btw sorry about my english. It might be a bit stumbling since its not my native lanquage

Your English is good enough to understand well!
I usually don't go for that hard tail bobber look but I think it must be the white rims and whitewall tire with the blaked out motor with the orange on it that screams, "look at me"! Very nice!
Did you do all the work yourself?

Both are great looking. I am normally not a bobber fan. I have to say. I really like how your bike looks there Vesa.
