Lookin good TOOLS, I wondered if that was an option.  Do you need to reinforce it or is it good like that?

It's good like that. There have been thousands of them cut off. Cycle one even does it with their hard tail frame conversions. I do not know why Honda even installed them. I think it was to keep people from doing their own engine work. You notice that the matics came with bent ones, so, the top end could be removed easily. I think they thought the matic buyer would not be the type to do his own work.

5 minutes with a sawzall, and no more complaining. Also Cycle-x makes a kit that makes them removable.

I had originally intended to build a rat bobber out of this bike. However when I got the brand new 4 into 2 exhaust system I kind of changed my mind. However after going to the greasearama this last weekend I am leaning back to a rat bobber.
I did some more playing around with parts today. What do, you guy's think?

I like the Kawi tank alot better!   The seat on the very bottom looks the best to me,but just because its the flattest. But i REALLY think you need to let me dispose of those shocks for you

I am really liking the tank also. I am thinking of lowering the tubes under the seat also. Might not go as low as a Konged frame. I do know I want semi-gloss black with a sprinkle of chrome.
Do, you need a set of shocks? I have at least 3 sets laying around. However I would recommend springing, for a set of progressively wound shocks like I just installed on the Toolmatic. best $90.00 I have spent in a long time.

I received a package from shinny today. It had some neat goodies, for the Bob-A-Matic. Even a surprise. A new O-ring chain. However the best were the cool pod air filters. But I am not sure about one of them. It seems there is something on it that might restrict airflow.

You'll want to get that off that air filter right away. Send it to me, I'll dispose of it. Never mind, I'll got some old dirt bike parts that I'll send to him to see what he gifts me.

P. S. I'll take that shirt too! It's funny because it's true!

I have been thinking about pipes, for the Bob-A-Matic. If I decide to go Rat the new 4 into 2 will just not work. I went out, and dug through my pile of old pipes, and found these two old 4 into 1's.
 

 
I am afraid that they look like a cafe racer exhaust. I could wrap them. That would be cool, but they would still look like they belonged on a cafe racer.
