Last Friday, I took the day off to work on the Sportster. While I might not have accomplished as much as I would have liked, I did get a lot done.
First up was to address the area under the seat. Once I get the new fender mounted to the swingarm, you will see the back of the oil tank, some wiring, and other parts.
To help cover that area, I needed to sacrifice a stock fender. I bought this fender a while back to chop instead of my original fender but got impatient. Anyway, its time finally came.
I traced the outline of the seat and used my cutting wheel to chop along the line.
Here it is mounted - quite possibly the world's shortest fender chop ever.
Eventually it'll be painted black so it will blend in with bike's frame.
