    Don't think there is a kit pretty sure its a complete custom job. Maybe see if Bajabomber could build you a shortened version of his trellis sub-frame?

    it looks like he chopped the sub frame to have just the front and back so it still bolts up to the frame and tail light, made a plastic for a seat, foam and wrapped it


    hand guards are kinda outta place on that bike though

    I can't believe he was able to fit in all the junk under the seat into that shortenned subframe. The stock configuration is like a sardine can as it is.

    some of it has to be relocated, unless he got the thin battery that everyone was talkin about a few weeks back

    that does look sweet. makes the swing look stretched. good question about all that stuff that goes under the seat though.

    Just take a hacksaw to it. As others have said, the hardest part about it would be figuring out what to do with the stuff from under the tail.

    I have absolutely no idea if there are any bobbers in here, but this would be a good place to check to give you some ideas if there are....
