    Well you are kinda doing it here, but in the wrong forum (see parts for sale). Just add prices and you are done.

    gsresources.com......but I hate to tell you most of that shit isn't worth much. Good to someone who maybe crashed their bike and needs a new one of those things but they are so common it will never be worth all that much.

    I don't think you know what a bobber really is because you are misusing it like all the other douchebags out there. What you meant to say was early style chopper. A "Real" bobber is a street legal flat tracker from the 1930s-1960's which if you notice your GS was made after that time period. A street tracker is that late 1960's to present day flat track race bike look for the street. What these morons call a "bobber" these days (see nightster, sportster iron, etc) are actually early choppers and have nothing to do with guys riding hardtail race bikes with cut down real fenders.

    this is a bobber:




    This is a chopper:


    This is what pre 1960's flat track racing used to look like:


    see the difference? See how you can take the 1948 flat head and take the lights off and race it? see how you can't do that with a gs450?

    The harley dipshits ruined the term bobber because....well frankly they need to have a name for everything, and not just a new original name but something that conjers an image and a lifestyle, so they just call every cut down bike a bobber. It's sad really.
