TJBC Customer Reuben Bontrager Builds Honda Shadow VT600 VLX

on January 24, 2017

Big props to TJ Brutal Customs customer @reubenjbontrager on this awesome Honda Shadow VT600 VLX build! Check out the pictures and interview with Reuben below!


TJ: Where are you from?

Reuben: I'm from Lake City FL.

TJ: What inspired your Honda Shadow build?

Rueben: I've always loved the style of the bobbers. I've built two other VLX600's using other parts from another company. I love the parts that you provide for these bikes. They have great quality and craftsmanship. 

TJ: How long did it take you?

Reuben: It took a few months.

TJ: What do you love most about the build?

Reuben: What I love most about my Shadow is the wheel tire combo. I converted the rear to a 16" just so I could run these Firestone Deluxe Champions. 

TJ: What was the hardest part about the build process?

Reuben: The hardest part was probably replacing the rear wheel and the hardtail. 



Build includes the following parts from TJBC.
