Default Bobbers

Hi

There's gotta be a few bikers in here. I've been offered an old bike very cheap and I seem to be the only biker who only actually owns 1 bike so would be a shame to miss the chance.
I'd like to bobber it, hardtail job. Anyone else had a bike project? Would be cool to see a few homemade frames and stuff

Just why? Do you sleep on a mattress or the floor? Do you sit & watch TV at night on a sofa or a dining room chair? makes no sense to me, style if it can be called that over function,

I'm an average guy, nothing special about me. I've been on one before breifly so know what to expect, I wasn't planning on touring the world every day on it.
For what it's worth I sleep on a hard mattress and when I go camping the bed is quite firmer.

I understand hardtails arnt for everyone but some folk actually like them
