I've been trying to make up my mind whether to go ahead and install some chrome fender tips on my red 1600 Classic, it would be nice to see some photos of other people's bikes with them installed.

I'm thinking of putting them on both tips of my front fender and another one on the back side of the rear fender.

I did a search and didn't find all that many decent photos. Does anybody have a link or some photos that they'd like to share. Not real porn mind you, just bike porn okay?!:mrgreen:

Thanks!

So, nobody has any pics of their 1600 Classic with chrome fender tips?

I've just about made up my mind to go ahead and put them on my bike.

Here's a link for the front tips:
Front Fender Tips, Front and Rear of Front Fender (set of 2) for VN 1600 Classic

And for the rear fender:
Rear Fender Tip, for VN 1600 Classic & 1600 Nomad

These are the only ones that I could find for the 1600 Classic, if anybody here has bought this brand, are they of decent quality?
Get'em, you will be happy. I just did front and rear on my vn2000. High quality stuff, except.... They use stainless steel screws. I just don't get company sometimes. Anyway, plan on replacing with chrome (6 total, I used allen head, looked cleanest), no biggy, just finishes it off better. I got the chrome allen head screws a Sears Hardware store.

What's wrong with stainless? Those look hidden and usually I figure that chrome pits and you get rust but stainless is resistant all the way through.

my thoughts exactly. and if they do show, polish them, they'll look just like chromed, and never rust or pit.

The problem with stainless is the screw heads are exposed on the surface of the actual CHROME tips, not hidden at all, and doesn't blend well with the chrome. Using chrome screws minimize the fact that they are even being used on the accessory.

So, this product is well made? Excellent!

I think that the extra chrome will look great against that nice red color on my 1600 Classic.

The links that I posted as examples are the best prices that I could find, so I think that I'll get them there. The vendor is "Value Accessories", I wonder how they are to deal with.

I'll have to figure out how much they'll charge me to ship this stuff to Canada.
