Looking good. Made quick work of it.

Excited to see what sams back looks like at the thaw, not sure that fender is going to do much for her if you hit some puddles.  At least it'll protect your carbs :)

Funny you say that. She actually reminded me of that yesterday haha. I have a couple spare fenders so I may consider cutting a new one down.

Not quick enough. I wanted to be on the road yesterday with it. Looking to be the weekend now.

Fender brackets are made courtesy of Mothgils. Hopefully they work. If not we'll revise the design.

Fender install went smooth without any issues. I need to trim the fender a bit smoother but I really like the look.

Neat job on the fender and headlight.

Thanks man!

Andrew sent me pics the day I had my tires mounted of yours. Yours turned out great! Once I get this finished I'll get some proper pics.

Thanks. I gave the fender a final trim tonight. Also, I'm ditching the yellow headlight. I don't think it works well with the color of the bike.
