Bobby's biggest struggle with his 2023 People's Champ entry was balancing the time and dollar budgets required to build a bike with this high level of finish while running his hot rod shop and the added responsibility of a brand-new baby. Not one to take the easy way out, he decided to build his first frame from scratch. 30" over, gusseted with molded gas and oil tanks– this is no off-the-shelf unit, that's for sure! The hot rod influence is evident with the vintage Pontiac tail light and stacked headlights. The paint is gorgeous and the subtle nickel-plating is a classy contrast. Proving it's no trailer queen, Bobby rode it to Cook's Corner for the party and voting the night before Born Free. Nice work, dude! (FWIW, you got my vote -Bill)
