Ironhead Newschool Extreme Bobber
Bill from New Orleans, Louisiana, United States sent us these pictures of his 1980 Ironhead Newschool Extreme Bobber which has a 1980 Harley Davidson Sportster Ironhead motor in a Ducati frame.
Bill: "I had a wrecked Ducati and a running 1980 Sportster. I built a frame with the Ducati suspension parts and the Ironhead motor."
Ladies and gentlemen, sit back, enjoy!

Actually, what Bill did was remove everything from his 1980 Harley Davidson Sportster that did not contribute to speed. If you take off the fenders, bags, horn, turn signals, front brakes, and everything else that could be considered ballast, you have created a Bare Bones Bobber.
If you take off the whole Sportster frame - wheels, tanks, forks and all - we feel it should be quite justified to say you have created an Extreme Bobber.
Of course this is not an Oldschool Bobber. There's not much on Bill's design that makes you think about those classic Flatheads and Knuckleheads of the 30's and 40's. To the contrary, there's nothing "old" or "classic" about Bill's motorcycle design.
Therefore, if Bill's Extreme Bobber does represent any design philosophy or style, she should probably be classified as a "Newschool" Extreme Bobber.
