Re: rear suspension #2
You got a classic bobber now with no front fender.
Any part of a front fender will help make riding easier/more enjoyable.
I rode my Sporty bobber 60mi in the rain at 38 degrees. Cold wasn't the worst part it was the completely full western boots from the water distribution system(read front wheel). Ate my share of gravel and sand too. Add the fender at what ever size.
