  1. #1 Help ID this customized chinese bobber please? 
    I found this bobber video on youtube:

    And when I tried to find more info on it, I see that user started with this bike which I don't recognize:

    It looks very close to my hensim 250:

    I think I see a project in my future since I have a welder and have to pull that bikes engine to fix it's transmission anyway.
    They say you can't shine a turd, but I beg to differ...

    Can anyone help ID the tank though, or guess the handlebars or how much stretch he added to the swingarm?

    That is a really good find Fonzerelli! I am a really big fan of metric bobbers and to find a small capacity version using Chinese rinning gear is especially awesome.

    I notice that this post is a few months old, have you been able to find any further info on the bike in the videos or have you made any progress on your own project???

    I don't know the brand of that one but I've found it's the same frame as mine and many other bikes share the same parts.
    The tank is a sporster chinese clone tank, I had found one seller on ebay but didn't have the cash then either, price was reasonable though.

    Stretch looks to be 7"

    Bars are actually like standard 7/8" old dirt bike japanese handlebars from 70's era, I've found several similar on craigslist near me, bought one off a yamaha parts bike for $5.

    Seats ebay seemed a good resource.

    I haven't done anything with it though since I'm broke, can't justify ripping it apart and then not being able to afford the seat and tank to finish it, but it's still here atm still waiting for a transmission fix and collecting dust and getting in my way.

    I've sort of been thinking of selling it as is though and just clearing out my china bikes and making the garage a nice billiard room. The weather here is only good for bikes a few months out of the year and even then half the time it's raining, pool table equipped man cave would be fun all year long.

    I want to do one of these more when I get into another bike: It's the lorena bobber based on a yamaha xs.

    The one in the first video looks like it would be super uncomfortable. A seating position that prevents you from putting any weight on your feet along with no rear suspension but bobbers are about looks.

    My 08 Hensim has been a good little bike, not one problem. I've only made a few minor changes to it for the sake of practicality. Raised the seat an inch, lengthened the bars, Harley mufflers, removed catalytic converters, larger main jet, smaller rear sprocket, support for shift shaft, rack in place of rear seat and sissy bar, small luggage box, soft bags, moved foot pegs back 5 inches, windshield,
