I picked up this fender off of eBay for $15 shipped. It was listed as a "universal vintage dirtbike fender" but the gurus of the vintage dirt world said its a Yamaha xt deal. It is the right era for the look I'm going for on the bike, and I dig the big louvers in the back. It's just safety wired on right now, but I'll eventually make a bracket to mount it up top.

Haha yeah, I really thought about that when I was zipping it on, but im guessing that the knobbie will throw some mud, and if rather lose a bit of the "look" in favor of keeping mud out of my face;)

It's beautiful, the white fender gives a Mario Bros Mega Z50 look for the moment.

I had racked my brain on the best possible way to mount the trailer wheel to a rear spindle, and what I had planned to do was make a complete spindle from scratch, and use a bw200 wheel mount center welded to it. I figured that if it can hold up to braking and steering forces on the front of a bike, it should be able to hold up to braking and driven forces out back, at least on a 17 h.p. bike. I bought a used bw200 front hub on eBay, and it just came in. I was pleasantly surprised to find that it should work as a compete unit with a little bit of modification. The rear drum from the TW bolts directly up to the flange on the bw hub, and with an extension tube  to mount a sprocket carrier and a bearing internally, it'll bolt right up. Next I need to make up a set of tabs that'll weld to the wheel and bolt up to the hub. Sometimes even a blind squirrel finds a nut.

I'm thinking these could take a rear wheel (maybe on the front too) like I have on the back of my Tri-Rod.  Not saying you should do it to this one, but it sure does having me thinking about the future.

I was even thinking about running a stock bw200 front wheel out back. It would be nice having an aluminum rim, but the only thing is they (as well as the atc rims) are 11" diameter vs the 12" diameter trailer wheel. I don't much care that the rim would be smaller, BUT the outside diameter tires available for 11" rims are smaller than what you can get for 12" rims.
