    Cool POP (pile of parts)! And your inspiration is, well, inspiring! Is it my imagination, or are a number of us focusing on the drag / hot rod theme this year? Should be interesting to see how we glean ideas from each other....

    All I know is the reason I am focusing on it the drag /hot rod theme is because the chrome mossburg fork looks similar to a hot rodders drilled I beam axle

    Got two parts mocked up to see the fit

    Originally I bought the fender skirts for my evans/colson firebird build
    http://www.ratrodbikes.com/forum/index.php?threads/project-firebird-455-sd.70767/#post-684747
    Unfortunately they would have required to much modifications and I didn't want to do that to such a nice fender skirt set

    but as it turns out they almost fit the monark frame perfectly
    looks like I only need to drill some holes in the frame and very little grinding on the skirts
    [​IMG]

    as for the 26" truss rods they needed a little re-bending to fit the 700c size forks

    The skirts are killer with that fork.
    I've got to add one of those to my fork collection someday.
    Don't forget to test your wheels with the skirt placement too.
