Start eyeballing the fender and where i wanted the struts to sit, then cut the fender down to the size that i think fits the bike better. Ended up cutting an inch off the sides of the fender to show more of the tire too.

drilled to small holes and threaded them on the under side of my swingarm to make the fender and bar removable when i don't need them. Made some small spacers and a longer bolt on the bottom of the strut mount which is where the struts are going to get welded too, then time to get to bending a bar

Now it's time to cut out a mount for the tail light and get it wired into the bike and see how it all turned out. All in all it was a good way to spend a night.

Bike is looking good dude. I'm going to try and mock up a detachable sissy so I can leave my swingarm mounted fender on all the time.

What are your plans for paint on the fender? powder coat the sissy and match the fender with the tank?

You've really done a great job on the bike. From the nash bars, flysucker intake, licks solo bag, to the brake light (without the obscenity, nice choice). Even the paint scheme is sweet. Great chop.

Im thinking about also making some small struts to be able to take the sissy bar off and keep the fender on too. Not sure on the paint yet. Been thinking about just clearing over the metal and powder coating the sissy bar but havent decided
