i was actually able to make small brackets and mount it right to the stock holes on the frame! i ordered a single seat off ebay....gonna wing that one i guessVery nice. Is the new fender attached to stock mounts? I would also like to customize my '86 500 with a bobber look. What are you doing about the seat?
I might make a fiberglass seat pan and then cut a fender from a metal spare tire cover from a junkyard.
you think it will? it may be hard to tell from the pic but i have a pretty good amount of room under there.I hate to p**s on your parade but the way that fender sits it will rub on your tire. Best fix it while you still can by adding more clearance or get used to riding with your shocks turned all the way up. ;-)
ya know i didnt even think about that...good call. i bet that would work, just might be a little more complex trying to make it strong...I was wondering about fabbing up brackets to mount a fender to the swing arm. That way you could practically have the fender kissing the tire and not have to worry about clearance. Good luck and I definately like what you've done. I dig the exhaust too.
