TC Bros. Featured Customer Ride - James Kimball

TC Bros. Customer Rides – a photo album dedicated to the fabrication ingenuity and creativity of our customers and featuring their rides they've shared with us.

Sent to us from James Kimball of Baraboo, Wisconsin…

“I got the bike 2 summers ago and it was basically a “jump in with both feet” sort of deal. I'm not sure where I first saw a "bobber" but I knew I wanted one. I did a little research on which bikes make the best bobbers, and I believe that was my first introduction to TC Bros.

I didn't have much mechanical knowledge, but I started tearing into it and ordering parts - and with a LOT of help from my friend Chase, who did a lot of the fab work on it. We turned out a pretty rad bike. 

I live in a small town in Wisconsin, and no one really knew what it was or what year it was, because there weren't and still aren't any other hardtail bikes around here.

This little xs650 was the beginning of my obsession and I learned a ton from it. Now I've built a sportster chop, and am in the middle of a ‘49 Panhead build, doing all my own fabrication and building - about a month ago I picked up another 1977 xs650 to build just for fun. I've already put another TC Bros hardtail on it. Just waiting to order more parts for it!”
