i chose that fender to scare the hell out of the Nova Scotia moose when they see it coming at 'em down the road. they jump right back in the bush, pronto.

might have to change something, it looks a little too close to where the radiator guard mounts.

The bike is in storage about 500 miles east of my current location, started a new career and don't have the time...so I am living vicariously through you, LOL.

Dude you need to keep a parts list and sell it to others that want to do the build.

Just throw a couple 1/4" flat washers between the back fender mounts and the lower triple clamp ... problem solved ...

since you broke the rules and mentioned the red fender, i'll be a sheeple and follow suit. When the front lights and fairing is on I think it will look right its just the lack of mass infront of the forks that gives it that long broke beak look

I think I like Dave's bike better than the Ducati. That forward cylinder looks like it's beggin for a Trans-Lab bowling ball rock to smash into it. I can't imagine trying to work on a broke down Ducati out in the woods either.
