A biker myself, I've just googled this 650 Bobber and have to admit it's new to me.

Given your age, have you had it restricted?

As much as i'd like to be positive here, I'd be surprised if you actually manage to get insurance; least a policy you can afford.

When I was 17, my biking friends recommended that I use Carole Nash and I still know a lot of bikers that use that company.

My motorcycling days ended when I fractured my spine 8+ years ago, even a few hours of pillion became painful but my core strength is such now that I feel ready to get back into it :)

Sorry to hear about your accident, i know i havent been in the scene long but i have been around bikes all my life and if one thing i have learned you cant give it up, once a biker always a biker.
Il try Carole nash looks like they do a policy for custom bikes!
Thanks

I don't hold out too much hope for cheap Insurance. You must of just passed your test under the new rules aren't you limited to 33 BHP for two years? 1979 650cc properly a yam may not be that powerful :p Anyway good luck to you Carol Nash is worth looking at.

Ride hard ride free.

Yea am restricted for two years but u have new mikuni carbs instead of the old CV ones so i cant get the kit so il just make a spacer to prevent the slides form opening full.

You know its a custom but you will have to tell the insurers everything or let them inspect your bike. My advice is stay on a standard bike for a couple of years get your NCB up and spend money on the chop you would of spent on insurance. :salute:

Footman James and Carole Nash are your best bets, but your age is against you I'm afraid

Post a pic of your bobber please
