Hi, I'm Steve,

Wow Rick, that fender is ugly, why don't you have the LED lights in Canada?

Nice bike though, here's mine:

In Mexico we got the same fender as Canada, dealer said they are required to have this style to meet DOT-like certificate to import the vehicles I also have seen that trend in some VW, Audi, Ford and Jeeps, some for good some for bad.

I really want the chopped fender but dot want to mess with the big flake painting, one suggested way was to cut the fender and just cover the rough edge with a chrome lip, but I'm not 100% in love with the idea if the lip. I would prefer a LED strip for the stop, VROD style

the plan B is to leave the fender as is but change the big stop unit with an aftermarket flat LED unit that keeps the round line of the fender i will wait some months to see what other 72 owners invent

Hi, I'm Steve,

Thor, I see the problem, why don't you just get a US spec fender?

Must be cool to live in Mexico, I love Mexican food, especially Paella.

Hi Steve(Drbonglover), are your upper fork tubes powder coated brass or plated? I have tons of brass on my 48 and like the look of your upper forks! Great looking 72!
