    After a few different ideas I finally came up with a fender that looks different. Even though there are heaps of lightning holes there is very little spray and it keeps the cops away.

    The headlight is just an inexpensive 4 1/2" from ebay that I painted satin black

    Thanks guys for the compliments. I used 1/4" aluminum and used a cheap Harbor tubing bender for the radius--cool thing is one can make any radius by changing the shoes of the bender. Mounting any fender is always the trick, the front end is from a 1986 Radian which has a very handy brace to attach to.
