2008 Cross Bones Bobber
Thank God There's Harleys... So, let's show them!
Our friend "HD Wrench" from Wichita Falls, Texas, United States made available these photos of his beautiful 2008 Cross Bones Bobber.
The Harley Softail FLSTSB "Cross Bones" was introduced in January 2008. With its Softail frame, springer fork and short front fender it combines classic motorcycle looks with modern technology. The apehanger bars add a bit of rebellious attitude to the Cross Bones. On this page you can see how HD Wrench turned his Cross Bones into a Bobber.

Maximum Velocity Area MVA heads, 260 cams, 58mm throttle body, high flow fuel injectors, oil cooler, super tuned with a custom map, automatic compression releases activated, manual compression release back up also installed."

Harley Cross Bones Modifications
Riders making modifications to their Harley Cross Bones was only a matter of time...
First thing to go on this bike was the Harley Cross Bones front fender. It may be that Harley Davidson had to deliver the Cross Bones with a front fender in order to comply with certain legislation, but the thing is just screaming to be removed...
Another Harley Cross Bones design feature that was screaming to be removed was that Cross Bones duck tail rear fender. HD Wrench did a good job there!
This bobbed rear fender makes the Cross Bones look a lot better!
