Bobbers are one of the oldest forms of customized bikes, started around the 1920's. Bobbers dont have any stretch or rake in the neck of the frame, the have rigid frames, small gas tanks, BOBBED rear fenders (cut down and very minimal), most of the time bobbers do not have front brakes or front fender. No signal lights, windshield or any other BS parts. Billet is looked down upon, and most of them are built using pre-84 parts and although some of us are guilty for using EVO engines, most prefer panheads and shovels.
Harley came out with a factory bobber in 1929, they called it the D-Series. They were stripped down from the factory. It came with no front brake or fender, small rear fender, and anything else no needed to keep the bike running.
The word chopper is way over-used. It can really refer to damn near anything other than a stock bike. But a bobber, is a bobber and not many bikes fit in that category.
The term "Frisco" comes from the way the gas tank sits on the frame, it basically sits flush with the bottom of the backbone, and the bottom of the tank follows the same angle as the backbone.
