Verry nice. I gotta ask are the wheels stock size and if so where did you find white walls for it. I couldn't find them for my 84

Rear tire size is the same, but the front tire is 10mm skinnier than the stock. I got them on eBay, Shinko brand.

Thanks. She was in pretty great shape for an '85. No dents or scratches when I got her a year ago.

I'm a sucker for olive drab, brown seats and white-walls.

Well done!

Forgive my ignorance but what's the difference between a rat-bike and a bobber? Back in the day we used to call them rat-bikes.

Cheers!

Rat bike (or car) Is what you call them when you run out of money and skills to do them properly

Great looking bobber btw Doug!
