What's the story on the exhaust? Stock pipes chopped with tips welded on? Looks cool. How does it perform and sound?

And that, ladies & gentlemen, is the true definition of "bobbing".

Which beats the snot out of "dismantling" any day of the week.

"Ride Safe, Chop Safer" Motorcycles are not unsafe. However; they are extremely unforgiving of inattention, incompetence, ignorance, and stupidity.
Dismantling, sawzalling, and rattle canning does not make a bobber.
Those are STEPS toward customizing, not customizing unto itself.

I meant no offence, in my opinion the straight cut just seems off somehow, but if that's how you like it more power to ya. And as far as chopping beats "dismantling" building from ground up is the only way to go IMO, that way you can catch things that time has done and repair it, things the manufacturing has done and mod it to your liking just giving the builder more chance to do the more intricate things.

I fully agree, my comment regards the act of dismantling followed by calling it "finished". In other words dismantling is merely a step towards customizing, rather than actually customizing in and of itself.
