That fender and license plate setup on old ness bikes was failr common in a lot of pics... I wonder was that setup custom made or did he sell the whole fender /plate setup together and then you had to weld it on?

No, he sold the fender and license plate holder seperatly, you had to mount/weld it yourself... both items together for $ 88.95 in 1986...

Who made that lense on the ness bike? I just
picked up an old Yamaha chopper that has that
lense, but it's all melted.

My grubby old bike builder mentor was/is a Ness freak. He built three bikes w/ Ness front sections. Cool thing about early Ness bikes was that nearly all of the parts on them were available in his catalogues. And some of those catalogues are real, real neat.
