Chris and I have been chatting about some rear fender stuff and I know he's been working on his sporty, giving the panhead a break for a change, and he sent me some great inspiration pictures of swingarm bikes with cool fenders. After seeing T-Bone's 73 Shovelhead, I've been digging the look of the skinny rear fender look. And his looks amazing with the swingarm in place.
I got this little rear fender (actually was my front) mocked up on my bike in the garage. its the look I want, super skinny. looks a little strange to me because my frame is so wide at the shock mounts, but i think it'll be a good little mod until I decide if i'm gonna just go for the full hard tail conversion....and in this economy who can just drop in on.......(you know...)
a few hits with the grinder should take care of those frame struts and then I'll have to make a sissy bar/fender strut from my rear axle. sounds like this could take some thought.
