XV 250 bobber build

Post by JordLevus » Sat Jul 19, 2014 11:01 pm

hey guys,

just got my L's and ended up getting a 08 xv250 for a good price looking pretty much showroom fresh!
It might be a slow process, but I'm looking to give it a bit of bobber style while keeping it comfy so i can survive my L's with something that at least looks cool!

Looking forward to keeping you guys updated!

Smaller rear guard and straighter handlebars would be a simple beginning.

Awesome. Keep us posted, and ask for any advice.

Bike is in excellent condition. :D

Thanks guys!
I'll definitely take you up on the offer for advice, first bike lol
I'm hoping for something similar to what stubsy did, with a few differences (no white walls, keeping a rear mount plate etc)

Just something cheap and simple to get me thru my Ls and Ps!

Fingers crossed I get some mods in soon!
