Hello to all in chopcult, especially the Japanese section. I'm new to bobbing and chopping but after some years away from bikes I developed a huge itch that needed scratching. Previously I rode a few bikes including a gpz 550 (pretty quick in it's day) and a couple of Royal Enfields (seriously slow but great fun) So, I bought a ratty but running Virago and have already dumped a lot of the stuff I don't need, about 35lbs already, and begun it's transformation into a cafe bobber. Being a Brit I probably have different ideas to the US approach to chopping, so I just love the idea of transforming a great Vee Twin into half bobber, half cafe racer - complete with simple paint job and racing chequer stripes. At this point I have no idea if I am going to be able to add pictures, so we'll see. In the meantime I've got to say, chopcult looks to be out there as the best organised and cool bobber/chopper/custom sites around, nothing like this UK based, so really excited to get involved.
