2005 750 Bobber Project

Hey Guys I have a 2005 bobber project that someone else started and I'm the lucky one to finish it. so far the front fork has been lowered and drag bars have been put on. The original seat was just shortened and modified. The biggest kill of the look is the ugly spray painted rear fender. IM WANTING YOUR IDEAS!!! on what to do for a rear fender to really give the bike a mean look. i had in mind of grinding oft the old license plate brackets and using some body filler and painting it to match.


I have a side view of the bike and a picture from the rear, its the bike on the far right in the first picture.

raise the front lower the back and go to tractor supply or northern tools and get a trailer fender with a flat top then mod it to the bike and throw a car tire on the back

[QUOTE=OleDirtyDoc I like what you did with the back of the bike I'm gonna completely remove the rear fender and see if i can go that way with it. Otherwise I have been doing some looking around and Fleet Farm has trailer fenders that would look pretty good on the back. Im also going to Sport Wheels junkyard and do some thrifting.
