A story about a 17-year-old boy and his love for motorcycles.

Animation by Madhouse.
1985 release - 44 minute anime movie.
"ボビーに首ったけ" ("bobi ni kubittake") means "being smitten with Bobby" and thus isn't a statement about Bobby but rather about the girl.

Ok, old animation does not usually interest me - especially a 1985 Madhouse title - but in doing some research I stumbled across an interesting review (see below) that called this piece a buried-treasure, which peaked my interest.

While the 'Buried Treasure' review might speak highly about this 44-minute movie, it's more a piece of art that could only be appreciated by someone who is truly into the 'evolution of Japanese anime'. Comprised mostly of still images and minimalist color frame animation, this title would probably be considered primitive by current standards. It is simple story of Bobby, a girl and his bike ... and guess who he chooses? ....
