needing help with fenders swap and custom.

ok, this is still a while out, but i am a planner. So i am planning on scrapping the stock back rest, back fender swap, and redoing the seat. I want it to look like the way the vulcan 500 is. i think the magna looks very simmilar to this IIRC. would i be able to just buy the fender and just drill new holes, or is there more to it then that. this is my first custom job, and first motor cycle ever, but have no problems getting creative

Just going by the online parts diagrams, it looks as though the stock fender has indentations to accommodate the part of the frame that the grab rails are attached to.
That might give some problems, as far as just putting one in and drilling new holes, but I'm not sure.

Yeah, the stock rear fender definitely has holes for the grab rail. I had mine off a few months ago so I could touch up some flaking paint on the frame.
I'm sure it wouldn't be difficult to drill the holes in a replacement fender though.

Hizzo, I like that look too. What about the 800 Vulcan fender? Would it work?

lol, i dunno that is why i am asking, i've never done a swap like this before. well this is on the bottom of my list as the EFI system just took top priority. and any free time i have goes to checking the frankenstator. so hopefully bu next year or so i will have an answer :P
