Would you sell that Triumph Girder? I've got a rigid frame with the same porthole casting, and a late model pre unit motor I'm working on.

Well I wasn't going to hijack, but after bdavanza talked about his "porthole" P/U frame w/ old Triumph girder, I had to show my future project. Currently hanging from the ceiling in my garage. Third in line. The latest craze!

Default Making a super skinny long fender.

Today i finished the rear fender. It's super skinny and at its maximum length.
I used 4' long 18g steel, it's all free hand fabricated: no buck, mold etc.. was used!
This one is not going to be like the short/bobbed fenders, it will be looooooooong and the rear light is going to be on the fender, it'll be supported with formed tube style fender struts and rails.

I started out by figuring out the width/form.




4' long 18g steel sheet














below you see the fender done so far with hand hammer and slapper only




It would be possible to continue with the hammer, but with the raising machine it takes much less time.



a little reverse bend









asides from being 18g, because it is so narrow and concave, it is extremely rigid.



cant wait to start the fender brackets and put it on the frame,
cheers,

I have no idea how I missed this one. Tuning in now though for sure. I love looking at the details and you have a ton in this build. Great work!

That's inspiring work! I guess next you'll tell us the fender only took a couple of hours to complete. Keep it up. This thread is better to see on the front page than "baggers" or some other sh*t.

I'm sure there are guys making fenders in couple hours but it takes me twice the amount to complete one, as a matter of fact this one was a bit more difficult for me because of its length, it's not easy to keep the long edges under control, at least for me.

haahahaa, yeah you should see me, banging the sheet for 5 mins, stepping out into the yard to take a quick look around the corner to the left and right just to be sure no one's coming for me, go back to the sheet, repeat... my neighbours are cool though, most of them here are hot rodders/bikers too..
