Hi All, glad to join you on this form, I'm the new owner of a VZ - 1998 and want to make a Bobber out of it.

I'd be grateful for any help, pitfalls, or traps to avoid.
My main concern right now is, do the "Universal silencers" we see on ebay etc. for around £100 actually fit a 1998 VZ ? . They say with a little work they will fit, but thought i would ask if any one has bought and used them, how do they sound and do they last.
My second thoughts are on the sprung saddle, I've seen a brill kit on Blue Collar but costs a complete fortune, anyone been through the saddle process or any advice on the best/ most economical route to take for UK/Ireland dwellers

Well apart from that , good to join the club, hopefully brains will be picked and solutions found

Cheers

JB

Hi JB, welcome to the forum.

Are you intending to hard tail the frame, if not then I wouldn't bother fitting a sprung saddle. Just mount a custom saddle straight to the frame or with a bracket. Hope this helps

Hi Dudes. Thanks for all the kind welcome notes and comments.

Hey Martin, that is something i didn't think of, a saddle mounted on a plate straight onto the frame, just a little concerned it may look "Flat" aesthetically artificial. No, I'm not going to hardtail the frame, love the ride just how it is with shocks, the geometry of this bike is a perfect fit for me, 5' 7".
I have seen a nice brown leather saddle on ebay at present from India / dehli for about £45 + £12 del and it looks really good, not sure of quality, if anyone's got one, be interested to hear feedback.

 Guys anyone ever used the universal slashcuts on ebay, be interested to know if they work/fit the VZ ? otherwise a bit stuck for reasonably priced pipes !
