Hey again,
I was wondering if anyone makes a fender elimination kit to get rid of the huge duck-tail fender of a 1998 Adventurer. I would also like some sort of passenger seat cover. I would like to cafe up my bike. Thanks, Aaron

That only works on the thunderbird/tbs subframes.
Indeed, although that is an easy bolt on conversion - you just need a Tbird or sport rear subframe and inner fender (avoid the 98/99 TBS) - you may need to make / modify exhaust hangers to compensate for changes in location.

Mick, as you're obviously famailiar with these will they fit the early pre-'98 tbirds?. Does anyone have any pictures of one fitted to a bike that's not been caffe'd?...........I might be doing my build in stages....and I don't want it to look stupid!! :)

Well, I dont know them first hand as others do, but I know they will fit a TBS which has a very similar subframe to a 97 bird as such I would not foresee problems with fitting the Mecatwin unit. The TBS solo seat will also fit a 97 TBird, though you will need to move the latch IIRC

Sure, you do. Have fun!

There is a photo out there somewhere of where someone has added a universal steel fender to an Adventurer. The Adventurer sub frame should provide you with lots of options. All you add is your imagination.

Here is a Mecatwin kit on Spooners 97 T-Bird:
