Whitch Fender?

Are you looking for a fender or what? I guess I don't understand what you are wanting to know.

So what 17" rim did you get that fit the bike properly? Pics would help, sounds interesting.

A flat trailer fender would match the diameter....its what we used in the old days for choppers. Unpained metal and cheap...

....looks like this...


And you know, youve been making a lot of outrageous claims, brother....time to post up a few pics of what you say you have....we're all interested. Words mean nothing, pics mean everything.

If you look in the quick reply box there's an icon that says insert image. Most people use a picture hosting site like photobucket to link their image. Once you have the link for you picture just click the icon and paste the link in the box.

here are some pics for non beleavers,upgrades where neccessary because of 5mm bigger sleeves and performance pistons i talked about and the fcr carbs with 20 hp over, stock set up couldnt stop fast enough even though i had high pressure lines and over size tires, progressive suspension back and front.hope it leans better now in turns as the wheelbase is also shorter 8cm now and bike has 7 cm ground clearance

The Vulcan Mean streak has a 17" rear wheel and the fender has a sport profile. No matter what you do, there will be some fabrication involved, but based on the pictures, I'm guessing that you have that covered.

I have a set of progressive shocks on their way. The nice thing about them is I can adjust ride height as well as rebound and I believe that they will lower the rear end by about 1 1/2". Hopefully they'll be at the house when I get there on Friday.

I had to shave the frame rails and reverse the mounting brackets on the seat, drill two holes where the frame rails come together and put it on. When I relocated the turn signals, I used the side rail mounting holes, drilled them out and through the fender, so they're supporting the fenders. I'm actually going to do some more cutting on it and weld a bar between where it ends up and the fender mount location so the seat will sit flush on the fender. Once I'm done with it I'll post photos.
