    Well I'm finally starting on making my 79 special more of my own. I haven't been able to decide which way I want to go with my bike. I came across this drawing on facebook and fell in love.

    My main question should I go with a 5" or 6" rear fender. I will be ordering my parts on friday from TC Bros and if funds are there a Hugh front fork brace. I will be using tracker bars with bar end mirors.
     
  2. I would say 6" Keep us updated,it'll be a cool bike

    This is a 5.5" fender I got from Throttle Addiction. The radius was way too large so I spread the lip out a bit (plus notched and welded around the edge). It fits great. 5" would be too small I think.
