Is your chain going to clear once assembled? I had to reconfigure my setup cause I did it without the chain installed. Looks like there may be enough room.

Man i tell you guys i dont think i will mess with fiberglass for a good while. time and money spent i should have just got a blue coller fender,lol


also picked up a soft tail fender but didnt want to use it. maybe next build i will just trim and work with it.

i know i need to trim the sides of the fender to flow better around the rim and tire. thats the hard part right now. i tried a string on the axle and sat the fender on it and drew a line. but no luck. maybe ill trim away to the lip of the tread.

Impressive that you've built it yourself out of FG... most usually work with steel or buy it pre-fabbed. Nice job so far...

Why didn't it work when using string attached to the axle?

well this rear fender is taking alot of my very little free time. but know i have the primer nice and smooth and laid some paint. i also took the front fender and extended the rear to help prevent the mud and dirt getting over the radiator.



will have finished painted items later for show when i clear and apply rubbing compound and wax.
