1965 OEM Panhead Bobber Project

John from Omaha, Nebraska, United States made available these photos of his 1965 Harley OEM Panhead Bobber Project. John's project is based on a 1965 OEM Panhead engine, a Kraft Tech hardtail frame, and a matching pair of Avon Venom X tires which have very narrow white walls and look very cool.

John describes the status of his Harley Davidson Bobber project as follows: This bike has been pre assembled, but the Kraft Tech frame has not been welded on. The motor has been run, but never in a bike."
