This is Brad Luke’s Bobber, based on a 2005 Triumph Speedmaster. Brad been into his bikes since his college days, and has been drooling over pictures of choppers and bobbers for the last twelve years. Brad now teaches art at High School and in his spare time has been building this little beauty which, as you can tell, has been influenced by those twelve years of drooling.

“The frame is a hand built unit by me, the motor is a 2005  triumph speedmaster 900 that I bought the whole bike as a wreck and used the engine and wiring that Ii had to cut down.

I have been working on this thing for a few years and I am super excited to have it finished up.  the tank was painted white and then I drew on it w industrial sharpie and then clear coated over top of that.  A lot of parts were powder coated by me in my shop oven and the frame was done professionally because my oven is not big enough for that.

23 inch front wheel off of an old honda elsinore bike that was laced up to a jr’s cycle  hub and the rear is an 18 inch ebay find. I made the seat pan and had it covered by a local upholsterer, and the rear fender is two old honda cb fenders put together and molded by me.  the gas tank is a aftermarket ebay find that was already frisco style, and there is a dual rear caliper setup that i had the local community college cut out the caliper hanger for me.
