where the rear section bolts to the frame is going to get cut and then weld a custom rear section on.

I don't know if you consider mine a chopper/bobber or not but here it is. I would say that Trashman900c and Greeneyes on here would be considered choppers. There are a few others but I cant remember their screen names. Some changes are coming to my bike in a couple weeks so I'll have to update as they get done. Mimic rear wheel and pulley, lowering kit back one, different custom pipes, pin-striping and some other old school paint to the tank, and painting the plastic chrome.

marek, did you trim the front fender yourself?
Yup , I had nothing to lose ..It was craked on the nose and through the front mounting hole after I laid her down ..so the rear holes became the front and I drilled new rears. Then I taped the whole fender off with masking tape (so you don't kill the paint when cut ) and drew the shape right on the tape . I used a jig saw with a blade meant for metal ( smaller teeth ) . Then I used 300 and 600 grit paper to round the edges of the cut . Since the fender is black and so is the plastic I have not found the need to paint . It was a fairly easy and free fix to a fubar situation .

thats really nice, I might try that, as I dont want to attempt shaving the front fender mounts but I still don't want the larger front fender.

Hey BlackLung ... how loud is your bike with those pipes ...? Any issues with back compression ? I have slaskcuts on mine and was thinking of taking all the baffles out to make it louder ...

Cheers
JD

I'll give you permission to add the pinstriping but don't change the silver. :mrgreen: You and Trashman have some of my favorite bikes.
