kawasaki vulcan 800 bobber kits

Blue Collar Bobbers has nifty kits to turn your metric motorcycle into a bobber. If you can wrench a little, for about $1,600 (for the kit you see below) you can turn your ho-hum cruiser into a pretty slick little bobber.

No, they aren’t all hardtailed and hardcore, but bM approves.

  1. I dunno…the bikes look cool but I’m wondering if bolt-on bobber is just the low brow version of bolt-on chrome and billet?

  2. “bolt-on bobbers.” quick! i gotta mail out my trademark info.

    i thought what you wrote, man, and i came the the conclusion i’ll write here:

    these blue collar bikes retain the stock frame and suspension which is a huge selling point. there’s cool and there’s comfy. most dudes like the bobber look but have no desire to break their back on a rigid. this creates a great niche for an incredibly affordable bobber.

    it isn’t for everyone, but it is for some, and i want those dudes reading my blog, too. as we know, custom bikes are like tattoos. when you get one, you want another.

    with that in mind, one day the dude who bought this kit is going to desire a ribbed brass fender from 7 metal west, a tricky set of bars from rock, a custom seat from working man…. look at it as a starting point, except that instead of tearing it completely down, you just change some of the parts.

    whew. sorry to go off on you, dirk. thanks for starting a discussion. anybody is free to disagree but i don’t want bM to turn into one of those sites where a bunch of people bitch about what is and what isn’t acceptable.

    that means there are rules. fuck rules.

    peace, man!

  3. These kits are sweet. I am a professional salvage diver. Most “divers” in this world are as novice at diving as I am with building bikes. I wish I grew up around bike builders or had the time to learn the trade but I don’t
    You are right bro this is a sweet starting point for those of us that barley know how to swim. One day I hope to create something that is magazine worthy, but until then my v star is sick compared to my neighbors. Blue Collar Bobbers is starting something that has been going on for a long time with cars and trucks. More just like them will be coming soon.
