Different rear fender?

Does anyone know if a different rear fender will fit our VN750?

As long as the fender isnt larger in width you should be able to mod any to fit easily enough.

We picked up a Harley hinged fender for the project bike. Looks more like a dresser fender.
Two things you need to be concerned about when shopping, the width of the fender and if the fender requires stays (what helps hold the fender to the bike) Once you have those two addressed anything in that range is possible

depending on the fender look you want, there are a lot of possibilites.

I used a re-arched cut down trailer fender on the chopper.
Anything that will fit between the rails, and follows the line of the tire will work.
If you can drill a hole and cut a piece of steel, you can mount a fender.

Some gold wing and HD front fenders will fit a rear tire , depending on the size.
I got a bro built a rear fender for his sporty chop out of an antique spare tire cover.

There is always the cusom shops too, if you want to spend the money. I saw a ribbed aluminum rear fender arched to fit a 15" tire for a $155.00

85 VN750 basketcase ( yes its a true 750, and no smog controls, its good to be Canadian)
It will have
a rebuilt 96 top end, rebuilt 85 bottom end
degoated, Eared
stripped, lowered, raked, bobbed,
reed valve boxes shaved
ported and polished
balanced
right side dump exhaust
heads and cylinders shaved for compression
looking for smoothbore sidedraft carbs
possibly fat bob tanks
modified vn800 or sportster drag pipes or I'll just make some
