besides.... a sportster never can be a bobber! I mean a real one.... what is a bobber. an old 40-50 like bike with its front fender mounted to the rear. the fenders hab "bobbers" so thats why they called bobbers. It was a solution to get the bikes lighter, with no money spend.
if you want to say "a nice cool bike" just say it and don't give em names like bobber, chopper or even bratstyle! its a bike..
I think custom would be the correct term to describe the two bikes I posted, although they have both been chopped on. I know what a bobber is, just figured the op didn't based on being new to the motorbike world and when asking to see "bobbers" but wanted to see customs/choppers.
Bratstyle is a company that builds bikes that all have a certain look. I guess it could be argued that from the popularity of Bratstyle the company has now actually turned into a legit style of bike to be called bratstyle. It used to slightly annoy me when I would hear "I got a brat style sporty yo". Oh really? How did you manage to import that from Japan? "Huh?" Now, any build with a ton of bolt ons, weird tank, no fab work, and chopped off fender struts is brat style. And I guess I can live with that, although not what i would do, lol.
