Front Fender Cut and Tat

I decided the front fender on my Scrambler needed a little extra something to offset all of that Fusion white. (I always swore I would never own a white motorcycle but this one is really starting to grow on me.) I pulled out the dremel tool and took about 1 1/2 inches off of the front and rear of the fender. If anyone else decides to go down this path, be careful and use a real low speed on the dremel, the plastic will melt if you cut too fast. Next, off to Pep Boys to match the Tornado Red with Duplicolor and I got pretty close with a Milano Red spray can. I also picked up some gold pin striping to coincide with the tank trim. I laid the red and pin striping with a couple good coats of quality clear and a new look for the fender for about $15.00.

Nicely done. Makes a good accent for the front of the bike.

That looks soooooooooooo good, you might consider getting a patent because the factory is liable to steal the design. I give it two thumbs up only because that's all I have.

That looks fantastic! I always thought the plain front fender was kinda boring, and that is exactly what it needs.

Splendid work. Another bonus of the shorter fender is it makes the spoke wheel more visually striking.

A very smart job indeed. Having seen yours I'm considering doing it on my T100.

Black with White stripe and gold pinstripe.

Bonny - '10 Bonneville T100 with saucy pipes, de-snorkel'd, de-baffled airbox, de-AI'd, UNI air filter; De-O² sensors; TTP map 3; TEC fork brace, steering damper and now TEC Gas Shocks. Sounds fabulous
