Chris’s Yamaha V Star Bobber Project
After not seeing my friend Chris for quite some time he called me up to take some pictures of his newly finished Yamaha V Star Bobber project for him and I was more than happy to oblige!
Chris has totally transformed his V Star since buying with a full strip down and refurbish and some new paintwork and I have to say, the bike looks fantastic as it does brand new. The colours Chris chose work really well with the “bobber” styling he’s gone for, the candy white and dolphin grey look fantastic and offer a bit of contemporary style alongside the modern LED lighting to the old-school look of the bike.
Along with the custom design of the paintwork Chris has also took on the challenge of creating custom parts for his build such as the bespoke number plate holder. The old-school brown leather springer seat add’s yet more contrast between old and new despite been a little bouncy as Chris talks about some mid air riding on the bumpy ride to the photo-shoot.
We chose the location Scarsdale Hall near Chesterfield for the shoot which is an old ruin of a once prestigious country house which was built in various stages the earliest been 1225 and the latest revisions in 1724. In 1919 the hall was bought by a group of local businessmen who stripped the house for its assets before been left for ruin.
