Is a bobber style motorcycle good for a beginner?

Some bobbers are "home-made" and have terrible suspension, such as rigid frames. They're a challenge, and not for beginners.

all true bob jobs and choppers are home made and done by the owner.They are fine as first bike and in my opinion the best first bike since you are the builder. as a matter of fact if you didn't build it and don't know how to wrench on it you shouldn't have it!

They would be better than a "chopper" style, as they tend to retain the stock neck rake.
