Help with first build - fender/suspension


New Member
I'm nearly done with my 1970 CL450 build and have hit a roadblock. I was planning on chopping the rear fender and realized the gap between the fender and tire is huge and I don't like it. I assume what most people do is go with shorter shocks? And then I'd have to raise the forks in the triple (although I only have limited room with the handlebar). And my bike is already pretty low as it is.

Sorry I can get pictures in the morning. And to be more specific - I opted not to chop & loop my frame so it's stock as well as the seat and rear fender.

Given the CL450 is a Scrambler, the suspension travel / clearance from wheel to fender is likely appropriate. Post pics, but the bikes look pretty awesome in stock configuration.

here ya go...untouched fenders on the bike...still looking for someone who sells a bobbed one that would fit that's polished/chrome. The ebay ones that were mentioned look to small in the dimensions (CG125 etc)
