    The chainguard is fully adjustable,up-down-left-right...So it should work. Think I'll go with the white, afterall.... :oops:

    thanx :mrgreen:
    got the Kenda-on-the-Nexus and on the bike. Suppose to warm up, maybe paint the springer parts today.
    Shorty fenders I need to remove brackets from to mount. Stole the guard from the fresh find Mutt, it cleaned up nice.

    Great looking bike! I like the white forks - maybe put white stripes across the chain guard? Bike is ridiculuos-ly cool man... I like the shifter on the earlier pics and how it flows with the frame in there... Cheers, T. :!:
