So today i have started to make my c800 into a bobber. Pipes paid for, collect Friday. A bike lift bought and also collected on Friday, both from Metric Cruiser (10% discount-nice).

I also put Jon (MC) in contact with Blue Collar Bobbers in the States, with the idea of importing some of their packs.

I will post some pic of what i am drawing my ideas from as soon as i work out how to...

This is from Blue Collar Bobbers web site, this is roughly the base structure.



Since i am in the Army and going to be a member of The Royal British Legion Riders Branch I thought I would go slightly military



This one may sound a bit strange. I used to play an online game, Eve Online, a quality game and real nice graphics, i am thinking about bringing in some of it to the paint...but the cost may stop this idea

No unfortunately he had to scrap it, we bought a new one together though. Ex police, completely white. He see's it as a blank canvas for another paint job, but we both own it, so it won't be painted until we can agree on a style, hehe.

Love that blue bobber pic above - I can see I'm goig to be jealous!! As regards the morse - I ran it through a morse converter last night too! As an aside....my dad was a WW2 morse telegraphist in the navy. He said they learnt morse code by sitting opposite each other and having conversations by tapping a finger on each others back of hand. I've still got a transcript on navy paper telling of the Normandy landings put out in morse by Germans as it happened - my dad retrieved it from his wastebin and now I have it. Clever bit of binary, morse code - in fact the forerunner of computer science! My dad used to talk to me in morse sometimes - diddy da dit (.._.) was how he said it.

It's just to get a ball park costing, no idea if i will be going with them or even if they can fit me in. I'm thinking it will cost about £2.56 for the whole job......yer, whatever.

Well they certainly have some skills, some brilliant paintwork on there. You'll get what you pay for I think.
