The Build Details

The Full Ultimate Bobber Build – Episode 1

Join the ride as we tear into my Custom 1997 Harley Davidson FatBoy to fully convert it into The Ultimate Bobber. Stripping it down to just a frame and motor to get it ready for powder coating and the build phase…

The Full Ultimate Bobber Build – Episode 2

After the complete tear down phase the fun begins with bolting on the awesome new mods and powder coated parts. Starting with the forks, swingarm and wheels…

The Full Ultimate Bobber Build – Episode 3

In this episode we tackle mounting the handlebars, hand controls, foot controls and several of the engine cases. The bike is coming together and looking pretty awesome! I’m loving the new murdered out look…

The Full Ultimate Bobber Build – Episode 4

Some of the most complicated aspects of this build is the installation of all the cables and hydraulic brake lines. Luckily I’ve been here before but still made some fixable mistakes along the way…

The Full Ultimate Bobber Build – Episode 5

The bike is near completion and I’m stoked to finally mount up the Vance & Hines Grenade exhaust to see how it looks. But all didn’t go well. UGH!

The Full Ultimate Bobber Build – Episode 6

After a longgggg day in my buddies fabrication shop the Bobber is near completion and it’s looking awesome.

The Full Ultimate Bobber Build – Episode 7

Back into the fabrication shop with the 1997 Harley Fatboy to build some fender and seat mounts from raw steel. It’s amazing how much longer it takes than you realize. Of course having friends constantly stopping by to check out the bobber takes time away from fabbing. The bike is so close to completion and I’m more than ready for this project to be behind me and just enjoy riding the bike.

The Full Ultimate Bobber Build – Episode 8

In Episode 8 of the Bobber Build Series its time to add 10 horsepower as we install a new Performance Cam from S&S along with a set of S&S Quickee Pushrods in my 1997 Harley Fatboy Softail Bobber.

The Full Ultimate Bobber Build – Episode 9

It seems like i have been building this bike forever. So I’m stoked to finally be ready to start this mean machine. But with such an extensive teardown and build there is bound to be issues.

The Full Ultimate Bobber Build – Episode 10

Today is the day we’ve all been waiting for… the Bobber reveal and test ride. I am still pinching myself that my custom Harley FatBoy is now the style of bike that I’ve been eyeballing for months. I didn’t see this coming but it happened and I’m stoked about it.
