    Well got to putting my bike together and the longer I looked at it I knew it needed something on the rear of it to balance it out. So I took a chrome 26x2.125 fender and cut it in half to get the bob look out of it. Got it all fabbed and base coated in the Gold and going to scallop the rear fender in white as well as pinstripe it in black too. It looks really good when i set it up, and was just what it needed. I really need a digital camera cause all I will have is the finished pic. But I don't want anyone to get the idea that I had it already done, cause that is NOT the case. I have A LOT of hours in this bike like everyone else does and don't want to get any wrong impressions that it was already completed with no progress pics. Sorry just had to get that off my chest. I will have a pic of my fender this weekend when I go to buddies house with the camera. Thanks Troy

    The Bobbed Fender will be schweeet!
    I ,myself,have never even thought once
    that you might be pulling a "fast one" as far as
    time lines goes..

    I love the bike..and you already know it's
    "right up my alley" as far as Style goes..

    I just want to see how cool it is when it's done!

    looking great so far..
    peace,
    Kev.

    Hey Hooch thats kinda funny cause I think that is the same car that gave me the idea for the paint job. It's a local (Indianapolis) club called the Road Rockets. They have a BIG show every year called the Rumble or Weekender. Did you get that pic out of Ol' Skool Rodz? I always go down every year with my club but this year I'm gonna take my Hawthorne with me and try to find Tom (owner of the car) its a 56' Lincoln. Wonder if he will dig it? Troy
    Also here is the link to their site.

    Thanks for the comments Hooch! Thats just CRAZY I didn't even know that this car made it in that mag honestly. Not in my wildest dreams would I think someone would know what car gave me the idea for my paint scheme. Very cool. I guess the world is a small place after all :D . Would be a cool idea for the headbadge too, but I got to run my bike club sticker.

    Well I got pics of my finished bike but they didn't turn out good at all in my house sooo I'm just going to post some pics of my fender. I will get it outside this time when I take the finished pics. Hopefully this weekend.
