Most people on this site are new to riding, not so new to riding, but realize that there is a lot of skill, ability, the need of facilities and proper equipment to pull off building a true hardtail. Theres so many people that have tried building hardtails that more or less junked their bikes because they didnt know what they were doing, have built bikes that are unsafe, have built hardtails out of black pipe (NEVER DO THIS!!!)and more or less did everything wrong. The easiest, undo-able mod, to achieve a "Bobber" look is to strut it. Hence that is why most people on this site go that route. A week later, they may throw their rear shocks back on. Tough to do if you hardtailed it.How come I don’t see to many people sectioning in a hard tail instead of removing the shocks? I would think “or at lest the picture in my head seams” it would look cleaner, although it is much more work.
