Hello, very busy these two months to continue, only 4 times I went to work on the bike; however, I just resolved several issues that I had not so clear, like fender;reinforcements; seat, etc.
I have been building this fender from near scratch; I used an old leftover as a base and built from that.
Made it like a puzzle due to several things going on. The main idea is to hide the side brackets. These struts will hold the fender (and let a person sit there) and the detachable sissy bar. Still not welded the bungs that will serve to screw the bar.
I did these side brackets first straight then a bit bended over; finally, I bended similar to an sportster (I did not took photos about it)

-the camera is not good so there s an optic illusion about the distance from the tire. The lens show the fender too far back and too tall regarding wheel, but in reality the position looks better. The back tip of the fender finish in the same line of the rim.
--Of course all in rough state.

---you know, is so simple the fender and seat solutions if the bike will have only one seat or the fender do not need to carry a possible passenger...like 90% of the bobbers here.

Thanks for keeping the interest.

...Hi Daddy boy, yeah freestyle because I did not had too many options but still tweaking here and there to try to finish it.

Here I did a shield for the oil tank; most secondary roads do not have asphalt here so a bit of prevention to the tank paint, due to I do not have enough space to continue the fender with the right circumference.

-A tube to reinforce the upper part of the rear frame.
I ll reinforce the swing arm too, however, I do not see it stiff enough...I accept opinions about it. May be I m accustomed to the rigid frames?

Good move bro, triangulation equals strength.

Swing arm; I made a new axle plate and butt welded for 1 1/4" stretch.
Plugging pipe? Entirely up to you man. I would want to be confident of my welding skills.

Check this out Reverb.

Actually after looking at your arse end again (yeah righteo), The more you strengthen the top. ie: what you are doing to triangulate the frame. If you mount that nice rigid guard well it will put less stress on the swing arm IMO.
Imagine what that SA is doing through a speedy bend and you hit a pothole with your top frame un strengthened.

...I read that wpage few years ago; also another member talked about it in other thread that I asked about this same thing.

Photos of your swing arm weld would be good.

...hello, may be some of you still are interested in this thread.
Long time without updating due to: working overtime; 2 broken cameras!(infamous lens error message); I have been having extra working updating my house; you named it: electricity lines; new flooring, stone wall covering, etc; my other motorcycle had a problem so I just dismantled top end, primary etc to keep riding..
Regarding the bike, I made again several things, like the exhaust, so not to much to update.
However, an important part is that I really do not have the tools (or a skilled buddy) to finish with the rear part (mudguard that can carry a pillion + detachable small sissy bar with hidden tabs etc)
and I was and still not satisfied with the trial results.
Now I am at an stage than I do not know how to go forward (mainly for not having access to the right tools); ok, mostly I did it without the right tools but now I have tight spaces and are the finished parts so all should be correct...
Anyway, here photos toying with a modified breadbin tank and the last iteration of the exhaust (I chopped couple of new ones and made a "lip" for the cone)

...hello,
I finished with that mudguard; is not good but I want to finish with the bike and then if I have better tooling options, etc I ll do it again, these not so perfect parts.
The mudguard has side brackets inside where I welded 3 threaded tubes per side to hold this detachable sissy bar.
When the bar is not on the bike you do not see any of these other parts, and still the fender can hold a person.

Of course is not the best to have fasteners down side but we ll see what happens. The screws are (6) 3/8 UNF thread.
As mentioned this sissy bar is detachable so I ll only use it when a big bag would be used.
The tip of the rake follows the frame rear down tube and the forks.
The rod is 9/16 mild steel.
I think there are no so many of these sissy bars for the swinging arm bikes.

...I let that mudguard to a guy that have a TIG with the hope that with that tool and his knowledge, better than mine, performed a job that did not "moved" the tin to one side or to the other...did not happened, and Im finished with an even crappier guard.
To try to put again the thing in shape, I had to use an small jack. I do not know if in the future after couple of Suns, the fucker could shrink again...¿?

-I bought this horn from a JJ member, but did not worked; so I decided to open it and after a bit of sanding, cleaning and a dash of oil, it s perform superb.

Let these pictures, for the guys that have horns that they think are death; still you can get good life from those!

...few days ago I made the license and light holder. I do not get it why all these brackets are made for the low part of the shocks; its stupid to have the lights moving up and down with the swing arm...

I agree on the tail light! It would seem to me the vibration from the swing arm alone would be enough to kill the tail light.

BTW, is there any baffling inside those mufflers? It would be interesting to hear them, they look nice! You have the stance just right. I like where you are going here.

...hello, yes, also the vibration just killed me the license plate on my 500cc, also I lose it riding in a long trip in other country, due to freeway speed, so I made this one stronger.

-no mufflers...yet. I ll try this way but if the sound is too annoying I ll put something. I see that the 750ccs do not sound to cool as the others without the silencers..

Thanks

...Lester, thanks; it s a slow building due to I do not have the right tools and the right knowledge sometimes.

Here the nuts for the rear spindle; two for the drum brake lever, for the torque stay and the other is for the brake lever.
SS; not so perfect but would play...
