Nash Bobber TFN

Taber and Marlin of the Nash Motorcycle Co from Vancouver, Washington, United States made available to us these photographs of their amazing Nash TFN Hardcore Bobber for which they used a 1986 Harley Evo Sportster as the basis.

The Nash design team has a reputation for thinking outside the box. And they take no prisoners. Check this one out!
