So a Bigger tire will look great, the same type and model preferred, not of road.
but i don't know if something like 111/90 -18 or 100/100 -18 can be found and also don't want to change the ride in a bad way.
reminds me of this

Now that's actually a nice look, particularly the drilling on the fender rails.

Finally, someone that understands the concept of bobbing.

"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.

Well guys I had to get rid of the Airbox, so I did it.
I read and read and follow all the recommendation so this is it. Finished 99% and jetted so it runs perfect.

Lolaocamp,

Your bike is looking great. Wonder if a 450 would look good done a bobber.

What did you paint the exhaust with?? Most of the exhausts on the 450's I rebuild are rusted and need to be refinished. It would be nice to do the exhaust like you did.
Thanks

Thank you. why not is pretty much the same if you like that look.

For the muffler part of the exhaust I used Rus-oleum High heat 2000F primer 3 coats and flat black paint 4 coats also High heat 2000F. There is a flat gloss coating if you wanted less flat. But is up to you. Of course you will have to prepare the surface sanding and cleaning with a degreaser first. There is a curing process you need to do after but nothing complicated follow the instructions.

Thanks for the information. I will do that on the bike I am working on.

Here is one I just got not to long ago, it is salvage title but I can use all the parts to make one out of the 3 that I have on non op. It is similar to yours.

Thanks again for the information.
