    I like the length of that fender, but the shape is a little "american choppery" for my taste.

    beautiful..

    Black and Frame color?

    will the Shifter be moving to another part of the bike now...
    will it impede with the tank?

    very nice,
    Kev.

    well kev the paint so far is primer red and gloss black trim so I'll probably stick to that theme...we'll see as for the shifter I would like to keep it where it is and I think I can make it work without modifying the tank by adding a wrap of leather to the top bar as a shim and it will give it that harley dash look

    again Thanks guys, sometimes I'm my own worst critic cuz when I look at it I see all the flaws in my tape lines.
    Here it is mounted on the bike also its a little hard too see but I found a front brake that will work on this fork .
