Looks pretty good

Was it a direct bolt on, or did you need to make it fit?

Although, now it looks like you'll need to raise the bike up a good bit to remove the rear wheel.

The only adjustments were with a body hammer..I was a autobody tech for 28 yrs so I had all equipment to call upon..Only needed hammer and marker to ding in. Mu bag bkts also just bolted up. Mounts in front (2) four others.. I can do more pics if needed..This will hide my hitch well.. Amsoil man

Looks good, what kinda big ole seat you running there?I have been thinking rear fender since I moved my License Plate and it slings a lot more water now,I also saw on here where some one had put a 81 GL1100 front fender on a VN 750 those two together look like a good combo.

X2

Don't know if I'd ever do it, but I'd like to know how.

Mom, I'm not wearing my helmet only for the purpose of taking this picture and
the background was digitally blurred to make it look like I'm going really fast.

I have 2 quick question for you,

Did the fender fit under or over the rear frame struts?

What did you mean by "To ding in"?
