Looks great! Super clean work!

Like the rear fender stay. I built a bobber out of a Sportster and did the same thing, makes a really sturdy mount.

You can paint the chrome if you cut the plating well with coarse grit and prime it. I kinda like it as is though. Boots are a cool touch!

Wow..thx guys!! What a great place to come share how this "hobby"has taken hold of me. I always liked white..just hope i will take care of it..it doesnt hide dirt an grime like black does. Yeah the chrome will stay. The boots did it.

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.

Im tapping out on rear suspention. The clutch i ordered ended up being a max torque design. I thought i was getting the C spring design..not. The shudder take offs are intensified by the suspension movement. Soo i have a bicycle. One last attempt at saving it will be to put a belt drive with lever actuated clutch. It works nice on my daily driver. The draw back is having to use a dual pull brake. If anyone has done a long handle lock unlock lever on a belt clutch..how'd ya do it?
