First thing I want to do on Bonnie is get rid of the rear fender and install a tail tidy. I've seen a few options tho at BC. They have a cat eye tail tidy a Lucas tail tidy and there and R and G tail tidy?

Any recommendation on these? Do any of these take into account turn signals?

Also I saw they sell a separate piece to cover the underneath from debris do all these tail tidy require r or come w it?

Looks like both BC kits come with the fender plate:

I personally just installed the Motobox slimline LED one and I'm a fan. Not as retro and more of a modern look, which is what I was going after.

Ever consider a mini rear fender instead of no fender at all? I'm running this Mini Fender on my T100 with a Biltwell solo seat. For turn signals, I added a set of jeweled LED 1" round marker lights to the end of the frame rails for a very compact look.

I like what you did there? Also what front fender is that? I've been looking for a short front fender I've seen these in some board member pics in black but don't know where they got

I installed the Motone fender eliminator on my T100 last summer (Motone Fender Elimination Kit - Lucas Lamp (#BCC-281L)). It looked decent, was fairly easy to install (a little forced bending and some custom hardware from Lowe's), but resulted in splattered mud on my back and the seat, so I removed it and went back to stock. I suppose in drier climates it would be fine, but not here in the Pacific Northwest where the roads are slightly wet year round. My real motivation was getting rid of the ugly turn indicators, so I ended up just doing that front and rear.

Motodynamic's smoked rear light with integrated signal - great eliminator. Installed today and it is a great piece of work.

Excellent instructions as well.


(kill me with the music, though)
