For those of you passionate about Yamaha's 1600 Road Star block, but are looking for a custom chopper, take a look at a company called Bobstar Customs.
The guys at Bobstar have been building custom choppers for 20 years. A couple years ago, they founded their custom chopper business in Nashville, Tennessee.
Using their custom frame design, a Road Star 1600 power plant, Morton's exhaust, 63mm front end, RC wheels, ostrich/stingray seat, and custom paint by Shane Brown, their first bike came to life. Designated the "Tangerine Road Star", the guys debuted their design at Bike Week 2004 in Daytona Beach, Florida. They went on to win numerous awards and trophies from shows in Sturgis, Rat's Hole, Star Days, and others. An overwhelming response of praise from industry giants such as "Wild Bill" from Pro Street Customs, Bob Starr,(no connection) CEO of Yamaha Road Star, Dave Nichols, V-Twin Magazine, Indian Larry, Josh Smith, Heavyweight, Mark Stoneman, Easyriders, Scott Britt, Britt Motorsports, Bobby Appleton from the acclaimed Appleton's Harley family and Glenn, Road Star Magazine.
