Dub Performance Bob’ster

Dub Performance Bob'ster Harley bobber
This neat and pared-back Harley bobber is the work of Fred Duban, one of the top French custom motorcycle builders. The Sportster engine is cradled in a frame from Zodiac of Holland, makers of the mighty Bikers Book motorcycle parts catalog. The frame is hooked up to a Springer fork and the bike is running a straight-through exhaust that probably sounds très bruyant.

Dub Performance has been operating from a workshop—near Lyon in central France—since 2003, and is regularly featured in the top French custom magazines such as Freeway and Wild.

  • So cool! I got to meet Fred last year here at SO-CAL Speed Shop. I gave him a tour of our shop and he kept speaking about his bikes but I never got to see any of them! This is great! I like this style much better than the the Harley he has on his business card. Regardless this build is amazing! Cheers.
