1947 Harley Knuck Custom Bobber
John Landstrom of Blue Moon Cycle, Inc. from Norcross, Georgia , United States made available these photos of his great lookin' 1947 Harley Knucklehead Custom Bobber.
John: "Here's my 47 Knucklehead. You might say it's a well dressed Bobber. Basically stock '47 but that's a 2" over springer from a Harley XA, front fender gone and Hollywood handlebars.
The extra couple inches of fork keeps the shiny parts from dragging in corners during TT races, that's Tavern to Tavern."
John: "I don't consider this bike to be a 'true' Bobber, it's more of a pimped out Stocker. I just has too many nice parts to be Bobber material. Fork is XA, dual exhaust, Hollywood handlebars, Cabbage Slicer rear bumper."
Straight Bobber or Custom Bobber?
To us, any Bobber is either a Straight Bobber or a Custom Bobber.
