I have the 1100 spirit. I got a used ACE rear fender on eBay and it bolted on perfectly. I'm even using the seat from the old spirit fender. The factory 2 piece seat, a Corbin one piece seat, and a Mustang tourer seat all work perfectly. Fender was even painted to match as it came from a same year ACE with the same colors. Im with you, I'm not a fan of the spirit style fender. Here is a photo of my 97 Spirit with the ACE rear fender.

Luckily for me! Do the 750s have a sub frame? I didn't know this. I've never even sat on one. I'd like to ride a 750 one day. Well... To be honest, I'd like to ride all makes and models one day lol.

If you're going for the ACE 1100 fender swap to an 1100 Spirit there is no difference in tire size or fender mount. HOWEVER...I do not use the factory spirit seat. The spirit seat is two parts, rider and pillion and each bolt to the spirit fender seperately. I have a mustang seat, made for the spirit (also interchangeable between 1100 models) that bolts on only at the rear fender, in one spot. My Corbin seat is the same, only one rear mount point, on the fender. I don't think, that if you are using the factory spirit seat, that you can use it on an ACE fender...So if you don't have an aftermarket seat, you will be out the $$ for the fender AND a seat...and a tailight...

In a previous post, I ignorantly stated that the two piece, spirit seat does fit my ACE fender and I was wrong. Sorry about that.

Cag40oz, I did it. See the pics there in the previous reply. Thats my 97 Spirit 1100 with an ACE fender. I beleive Furball is refering to a fender swap on a 750? There is no need to exchange the side rails or sub frame on the 1100 models. The one piece mustang seat fits perfectly.

Perhaps the ACE seat can. My factory spirit seat mounts like this: Driver seat tucks under tank and uses two bolts on rear to fasten it to the fender. Rear pillion then slips into driver seat bracket front, and uses a single bolt that also fastens to the rear fender, only further back. On my newly aquired ACE fender, there are no holes to mount the driver seat to, as before mentioned. it only has the single, rear most hole that mounts the pillion. Therefore I must use an aftermarket seat, that is pillion and driver one peice. Other option would be to drill and tap mounting holes for factory seating...but I hated my factory seat and used this as opportunity to get a Mustang seat.

Not my Spirit seat. As I am able to bolt the single driver seat to the Spirit fender and ride with a solo seat. This is not possible on my ACE fender. I don't know why it doesn't have holes for mounting the solo seat.

I assumed that we were talking a direct swap here. The holes being absent in an ACE fender makes modification needed. Making it not possible...for everyone. Some, I dare say most folks don't have tools or know-how to do this. I chose to dump the Honda seat. Less work, more comfort.

I read this and based every reply on the fact that he has an 1100 Spirit. I honestly can't find where he said he had a 750 or why you believe he has a 750.

"Will this work on a 99 shadow spirit 1100 with the flared rear fender? I'm looking in to doing a lay-away program with this dealer down the street from my work who has a 99 spirit 1100 black with 29k."

I don't see anything about a little 750 in this paragraph...
