I purchased a swingarm that will hold a 250 tire. It was stretched 4". I wanted to use the DNA sproctor/ brakester, however, it did not work with using the swingarm. My lack of knowledge. Spoctors are best with hardtail frames. So the dilema is to get a smaller brake caliper or just place the brake rotor and caliper on the opposite side. I really wanted a "clean" "open" look on the left side of the bike. Once again, you plan and plans change along the way.
The sproctor situation was posted on here. Once again, I really appreciate the help that was received by the members.
I attended the bike show at the Carlisle Fairground during the summer. The availability of parts were plentiful. A few items were purchased including the rear fender. Great time at the show and will be going back this summer. Need more parts. With the swingarm, wheel, tire in place, lets see how the fender would look.
So lets take a step back and look at what I have. Yup it's time to.......PIMP MY FENDER!! Did some test runs on drawing paper. I saw 2 ways of doing it. If you look at the black paper on the fender, thats the part that would be cut.
So the fender is cut so how else can I make a lil difference in it. hmmmmm cut a design out the middle. So thats what I did. Ill be using a grilled design in the opening of the cut. the fender will be powdercoated BLACK and the grill insert ORANGE.
The fender fab is completed so...THE FENDER IS PIMPED!!!!
