Bobbers originated back in 1930s and their initial name was “bob-jobs’. It referred to the customization efforts which focused on the weight reduction of the bikes, by stripping down superfluous parts and shortening of the rear fender that resulted in the iconic bob tail look.
Since then, the modern bobber design has evolved and was incorporated into the lineups of mass market manufacturers, who want to cash in on the fans of the classic looks. In this video we will take a look at the best production models that are currently on sale, and will show you their prices and technical parameters.
