1982 Ironhead Bare Bones Bobber

Chris from Punta Gorda, Florida, made available these pictures of his Harley Oldschool Bobber which has a 1982 Sportster Ironhead engine in a Paughco hardtail frame. Chris calls this lady a Bare Bones Bobber, she's got NO turn signals or horn, she's only got what she needs to go. And she is loud and fast, and bad a**.

Just for safety, this Oldschool Ironhead Bobber has a drum brake at the rear and dual disc brakes at the front.
