that is the only place its mounted. the fender is firmly mounted just cant use it for a back seat. so i am building a back seat with its own struts. that way if the other half want to go for a ride she can.

Here is a link for "struts" that are pretty inexpensive, although I sold my last set of solid aluminum Scootworks ones on here for like $60, so something like that would be an option, too.

Thank you for the info. The other option I am looking in to is ordering the blue collar bobber rear fender brackets. I simply need the brackets to mount it all to the swing arm. then it can travel all it wants and not ruin the fender I already have. I have a call in to them to see if I can purchase the brackets alone.

If you want to mount to the swing arm a bit of metal a grinder and a welder and imagination is your limit.

I called BCB about the brackets for the rear fender mount. No go. He said he does not want the liability of selling a part that is not designed for the fender I already have. I can respect his decision. That option is gone. I do, however, have a tractor supply store that is about an hour away. They had two in stock. I am going to pick those up in the morning. Thank you for the suggestion. The minimum length for the adjustable top links is 11 inches. This works GREAT for me! Every hardtail strut I have seen is 9.5 inches eye to eye. I already feel like I sit too low on the bike. I can't wait to try these on the bike.

I am hoping that my 5 inch springs will be here by Friday afternoon.
I need to get those installed and the fender situation figure out by Friday afternoon. Otherwise, I'll have to go back to the stock seat and run without a rear fender for the weekend.

I did get my risers installed along with my bar end mirror. I will get a few more pictures tomorrow.

what bars are you running? they look a bit like my old biltwell trackers but with a bit more droop. Would love to see a side shot with those risers..... been thinking I might go back to the low a mean look next year and would like the bars a bit closer but wasn't sure how pull back risers would look.

I'll be interested to see how the plasti-dip holds up on your front end, too. It has done really well on my guage housing and other parts that don't see a lot of friction. I think it looks tits.

The bars are from my brother-in'law's 2002 Shadow 600. He moved up to a bitwell bar and he had these laying around. The only drawback is the clamp for the clutch lever is so close to the end it almost doesn't fit. It was a tough squeeze. I'd like to get a few more pictures of the front end tonight.

The plasti-dip has held up great so far. I have had the front end painted for almost 6 months, and the only scratch I had was during my move from Northern California to the Central coast of California. As long as there isn't anything rubbing, it does great. Where the cable run by the headlight, I can see some bright and shiny chrome showing through. I am thinking about reusing the cable brackets that I took off.

Yeah, my clutch cable wore through mine on the back side of the HL bucket, but I ain't sweatin' it.
