11" Wide Swingarm Mounted Fender finally finished. 2 Years, 6 Months ago  
This was my idea for a low, wide swingarm-mounted fender on a softail.... long before the motor company starting putting these on the softail Rocker model. the sissy bar was a little time consuming.

here's a view from the other side...the cut of the fender matched perfectly to the flange of the RC Smoothie Wheel. I used 1/2 tubing to maintain the space between the tire and the fender while doing the setup and assembly.

hello Thunderstar loved the outlook of your 11" Wide Swingarm Mounted Fender. Are you willing to share details on this? like where you bought you rear swingarm, rim, etc. I would love to do something like this to my bike. Do you recall total cost on this project.

flying on wheels,
Jose
