Custom Rear Fender Struts

After flipping though some magazines and books I came up with a design for the rear fender struts. Ok, I “borrowed” the design from the Indian Larry Legacy Blue Bayou bike.

Materials: Bungs from Bung King, half inch diameter round rod and 1″x.125″ flat bar from Home Depot.

Tools: Mig welder, drill, map gas torch, bench vise, bending jig, half round file.

    I just picked up a 96 1200 sporty on the cheap and immediately started looking for a rigid frame.
    As I Googled and sorted thru the specs on various designs, your build and the led sled came up.

    Paughco offers a 33 rake but I had heard they sit notoriously low. theres a number of other manufacturers out there but led sled seemed to have all the features I was looking for, especially with the single down tube, rake and gooseneck.

    I'm curious, did you use the standard 40 rake and if so with which tires and rim sizes, also is the springer a +2 and how did you compensate for trail.

    You seem to have gotten the right stance and the lines are well proportioned.

    An Exile bobber without the Exile price.

    Very nice.
