    I decided to just make a whole new front fender and widen it so I could put over the forks, that should fix anymore tire rubs. I think it looks better wider also.

    I was going to paint them to match the headdress with a touch of the bright red on the headdress to match the fenders. I wanted to get the headdress off white color on the tank, I didn`t get white on the chainguard feathers yet. So close but not good enough.

    I am calling the elginator finished even though I ended up using the original elgin front fender. It rides just like a new bike because it is almost all new. I was hoping for better weather for better photo`s but it is misting out there. I don`t know how to add a link to my build so I will post...

    I am not going to make the deadline with the warbonnet, the fender is going to take some more fitting. You can see what I was hiding under the rags in some photo`s, I wanted to use red leds in the skulls eye sockets but didn`t have time so I used plastic jewels. I will finish warbonnet up as I...

    My springer works without the fender but with it, the tire hits the fender. I had the wheel out front, the spring in the back and a pivot bolt going through the fender in the middle, it worked but rubbed bad, these tires are just huge. I am trying to piece the fender together so I have clearance...

    I am taking the springer off and cutting the fender so the wheel can move back inside the fender, the springer had the wheel moved forward so I had more room. I still want to use this fork.

    I have a setback on the warbonnet, the springer moves the tire into the fender and rubs bad, the tire is so big it hardly fits in the fender without having a springer to move it, so you can see what I am doing now trying to make the fender fit better. I eliminated the springer and am mounting...

    I might not make the deadline with other things I have to but I guess it doesn`t matter I will still have a nice bike when I am done. I want to paint the warbonnet on the tank a less bright color, still have to work on the chainguard, and toolbox for under the seat and a bunch of little things...
