Just got a 1994 Suzuki vs1400 intruder. I want make a bobber out of it. Looking online I really like the "fat" front tire look. I can't tell if all these guy's are using their factory frontend or buying wider triple trees. Also I can't tell if they are going to a 16" rear from the original 15". Does anyone know the max size of wheels and tires, front and rear, will fit on factory bike? Thanks

Don't have many, or any, custom builders on here any more.
But I have a couple of comments (imagine that). ;)

FAT front tires are for show. Typically they introduce terrible "understeer", that is, turning is difficult.
Making major changes to the front end geometry often makes for a bike that is hard to ride.

Secondly, the total lack of a muffler (straight pipes) is obnoxious, inconsiderate, bad for the rider's hearing......and ILLEGAL.
