Re: New here, with a DIY Chainsaw Bike
After looking at it a while, I figured I could come up with something better for my front fender. The gold Spam can didn't look quite right with all the chrome anyway, and didn't deflect as much water as I'd like. Not that I ride in the rain a lot, but it tends to sneak up on you around here. Also, it's less mud I'll have to clean off before I bring it inside. I found a scrap piece of stovepipe kicking around, so I bent it to form around the wheel. Then, I cut some brackets of the same material, folded over a couple times for strength. I think it looks better, and is definitely more effective than the first. I could have bought a nice one, but the basic idea with this build was to make what I need from what I have. As I ride around and collect more things in my backpack, I'm sure there will be other alterations as well.
