    I was struck by exactly the same idea! I think this build would fit that perfectly!

    I like it best with both fenders, but I have a suggestion to test.
    How about rotating the rear fender around where the front lip is about as low as it can go and the rear lip is about in a bobber position.

    I'll try and mock that up and then post a pic to see what you guys think. It definitely sounds like a cool option.

    I'm aweful at updating this thing. After my mock up I proceeded to go down quite the rabbit hole in terms of painting. To be frank I quickly found out that it is definitely not my calling in life!

    Little chain guard painting gave me a false sense that I may be ok at this painting thing. Wrong

    Chose to go with satin black so it would have a little bit of shine. Then taped off bead rolled section of the tank which was to be painted red.

    Being my first bike build and paint job I didn't realize that I need to sand or scuff the area I wanted to paint red so the paint just ran everywhere, stuck to the tape, and peeled off when I took the tape off. Smh

    Needing all the help I could get I ran to KJV to help a brother out and get me straightened out.

    Now the red looked good but we had some overspray in spots so we had to hit it with some black primer. So now I had a frame with some satin and some flat paint. Being an idea I bought some flat black on the way home with the intent of making all the black, flat black. Naturally even though I was careful I got significant black over spray on my red and it have the whole thing a haze that looked like garbage. This pic is of the better looking of the two sides. The other side was much worse.

    At this point I was ready to throw my frame off a cliff. However I made the decision that the only way to fix this was to hand paint the red. So with steady hands of my wife she painted the areas red and it turned out amazing. Crisis averted!

    Wanting the red insert to pop I added a 1/8th white pinstripe tape outline to the whole thing and I have to say I'm super happy!

    The paint is looking great now. I really like the black red and white.

    But... I also hope no one mistakes you for a nazi :eek:

    Find some old metal to practice on. Watch a few youtubes. Listen to KJV. In the end remember that lighter multiple coats is better that thick single coats.
    Turned out good though. I really like the maltese cross there.
