Has any body out there done this, "Mounting Rigid Rear Fender to Softail Swingarm" I am building an Evo Softail Chopper, I hate the big gap between the fender and the tire, I don't like any of the fender kits out there, so my intention is to mount the fender to the swingarm section as if it were a rigid frame. I have a Chopper Shox seat setup and I know I need to leave room for the movement of the rear section. Is there any thing I need to be aware of here. I'm sure someone has tried this, I am willing to learn from your mistakes.Attached File  IMG_0836.jpg ( 38.5k ) Number of downloads: 4

we did a build for a similar application and used a trailer fender blank from northern tool, you can make the mounts out of anything you can think up also
