Nice Justin. I can dig the "wrap around" look

Yep. Wrap around. Ribbed. And a duck tail.
I'm going to eat your brains and gain your knowledge.

You know the honda front fender makes a perfect rear fender for the deadtail, mine has a set of holes in the laser cut pattern above the axle for a fender.

I'm always leaving pics of my bikes in other folks threads so he i go again: note honda fender with stock hoop mount, bolted right on.

Just a mockup so far, but the shorter cb550 front end is a 100% better look than before. Pretty excited to have some disc brakes too. I have to open up the bearing cups a bit to accept the stem, but a bit of time with the lathe and the all balls tapered neck bearings will fall right in. I'll have to figure out a steering stop too. I'm personally liking where this is going much more.

Think outside of the box... The Kawasaki tank I started with is being painted as an option, so the BSA comes with a wardrobe haha!

Tank?  What tank?  Oh, you mean that funny little blue lump on there?  Yeah, gotta go.  Got a replacement in mind?  (You're probably missing that 500T extra you had...)  Too bad I cut up that GSX100G beauty I had I would have donated it!   ;D
