hey guys i wanted to take my 2002 warrior and make it a bobber. iam being shipped a2007 solo seat thanks to motohd66.So to those who had this done before and those who justknow i was wondering how would i secure the back part of the seat to the frame or will the locking mech be strong enough since i will not have the rear fender for the seat to rest upon.also wanted to take the stocktaillight and mount it on the back of the seat if anyone has any ideas on how to do that as well. any info will be much appreciated. thanks in advance

Mine isn't a isn't a true Bobber but if you look at the pictures in my gallery, my seat is secured with just the locking mechanism. It has been like that for a few years and has held up fine, but the seat does wobble at little if you wiggle it.


As for your question about putting the tail light in the back of the seat, I know I have seen this before but I can't remember where. I can't see it being to hard and I would recommend getting an integrated taillight then you will have the turn signals also. I am a big bobber fan so I am looking forward to seeing some pic's when you get it all set.

Bobber means different things to different people, but from what you've posted I gather you want to bob to rear fender to zero and have an overhanging solo seat. To do it right you'd want to cut the rear fender, and inner-fender, until its just long enough to support the rear of the seat which will also fill in the nasty gap that remains otherwise. These posts are not what you want to do, I know, but there will be bits you might be able to use in order to create a micro-mount for the rear tab of the rider seat.

I'll hunt down one of the bobbers already done and post a link if I can find it.


This is more old school but has some elements: http://rswarrior.com/forums/t/3077.aspx


More later.


This will have to do, the Warrior is a hard bike to bob - but these examples might bring out specifics you want to accomplish?

This is what I did on my seat. I cut the section of the tool kit indention out and put a piece of aircraft aluminum in the place of it. I tore about 2 inches of foam from the middle and made that Corbin style bowl shape from it. Cut the lip for the support for the back of the seat and flipped it around. The bracket that holds the rear of the seat and clips the toolbag bungie strap, I cut the part that holds the bungie strap off completely and flipped the bracket. The is one piece that you need to bend on the bracket so it doesn’t scratch the fender.








The flame job the guy did isnt all that great. I told him that I didnt want them to be symetrical and at the side of the red stitching, I thought that is were the side seem would have been... oh well. Im working on a fiberglass flamed pan right now. It will be a while before that one gets done.











Hope this helps or gives you some ideas!
