Really nice "Classic" look. That front pipe is quite a shape.  Front fender looks like it's designed to match a much larger diameter front tire though.

Not mounted so the clocking makes it look weird, but you are right, probably for a 1" larger wheel.

Sucks that all your old build pics are dropping off the thread.

Ad said its made to fit an 18 or 19 inch tyre, once its cut down and mounted should be ok.

Looks great!  I would have probably just left the welds unsanded and polished right over them.

Is your chain a bit tight?

You're running an 18" up front, correct?

yes 18 front and rear

I suppose the seller of the fender could have said it fits 16", 17", 18", 19". But it will only look right on a 19" due to it's corresponding radius. Cropping it will certainly help the wide end look.

LOL, if only ads read so well. ;)
