Thanks fellas.
Reverse bobber! hehe
yeah I think it's really funny that it's technically not a bobber, because no chopped fender.
I think if it was hardtailed or had low struts I would go with a chopped minimal fender.
But Im sorta goin for a different idea with this one.

hey, i always liked the way this rear fender was mounted with the shocks...
look around, there are some fine looking machines without looking too bad or chopped up!
and yes, yours looks great, but i'm only responding to your comment...



and he's running white walls and i think it would be fine in gloss black! lol!

Cool

also have one of these front seat brackets to give away if someone wants one
There is one I have here that is slightly substandard but will still look & work fine,(bit of corrosion in the zinc plating where you wont see it, and the bar is welded on not perfectly 90degrees, (only a few degrees off, doesn't affect use/mounting) - I dont want to sell it as I dont feel it's up to scratch for that, but in actual fact when it's mounted noone will ever see the faults.

hehe, which is kinda the idea.
that's what the covered shox, sprung seat were about and the whitewalls helped it along nicely.
but not sure bout the flared fender yet. might have a play around one day mocking it up, when i get time.

pickin up Nightster fork boots from amps on thurs, another forum member has bought a pair as well
lookin at puttin one of these decals on my oil tank (i know it's a BIG BIG modification but hey everything counts)
they are expensive for a decal - the water slide ones are better priced but i think i'll get one of the metal ones which are more

fork booties
these Nightster ones have little tabs inside so any sportie owners fitting them be aware that you need to trim those out very carefully with a sharp snap-off stanley knife. once you've done that they fit the earlier forks perfectly. Believe it or not the Nightster genuine HD ones are cheaper than the aftermarket ones AND THEY ALSO HAVE HARLEY DAVIDSON ON THEM WHICH MAKES YOUR BIKE MORE COOLER THAN OTHER BIKES IN THE WORLD OWNED BY HUMANS OR OTHER BEINGS alien alien alien pig pig pig tongue tongue tongue tongue tongue tongue tongue tongue tongue tongue tongue tongue tongue

same price at all NZ HD dealers 27ea (54pair) they usually have to get from Oz so if you order before their weekly Friday order you get them the following thursday. as they are Nightster they are 39mm not 41mm.

Hey Andrew, no, they are harley part # 99353-82Z but from what I understand harley discontinued them so I had to order from another US supplier. They are made of aluminium & darn expensive(cost me 40NZ incl shipping which I think is a lot for a decal). There are water slide ones around that are about half the price tho.

next plan is to take off the anniversary fuel tank & chuck it in a cupboard, then put another tank on, & find some old harley tank badges from around the 50's to 60's era & put them on there, to carry on the retro styling cues.
so im gonna need to find another tank, & some old badges

I had one of mine painted red and black with the same tank badges. I'll dig out a picture when I get home. I like the Yellow one.

I almost like that but it looks too new. Maybe after it gets a bit more lived in it would be better.
