LMAO! Yeah, I got an email from him that said it was sold today too. LOL What kind of frame was it again? ( What does SB&F stand for I mean).

I've been thinking of trying to find a cheap hardtail frame to build a metric bobber. The thing is I can not find anyone making them like Kraft/Tech makes a ton for HS motors. I just want to do a cheap..CHEAP...metric bobber build for putzing around town on.

Thanks!
I'm not even sure yet. Part of me wants something like an old CB, GS or XS in the 500-650 range but another part of me wants a little Honda Rebel to toy with.
