New steering stem bolt.. the old one was fugly cause it was hidden before I switched risers.


My Nightster fender arrived today and I did a quick fitting and all is good. I might add a fender extension for more of that "ready for muddin'" look.

Started laying out some options on chopping the rear fender down...


Ended up looking like this... I'll get the struts cut and make a decision on if I'm going to trim up the fender any more.


and yes.. my lift is a pig-sty...

I thought you were building a scrambler, short short fenders in mud ?,

Itís still extended past the axle a wee bit... should be plenty good enough for all but extreme riding which will never happen... not like weíve got dunes or mountains to play on here in central Illinois.  I donít expect a big old mud streak up my back as it sits. What Iím thinking about for my tail light and license plate might end up extending the mud catcher a little bit anyway. If it doesn't work well I can weld the struts back on and put a full fender back on it... I'm my own paint guy... the expense would be negligible.

I did a test fit of the air cleaner today... It's a Chinese cleaner off Ebay, but I swear the machining is as good as any out there... The fit is good and at $30 shipped it's ridiculous that they can even do it at slave labor costs.... I'll powder coat it to match the rest a little later when I'm doing the engine covers. It'll do nicely.
