Bobber Rear Fender questions
I am looking to turn my 99' Yamaha V-Star 650 Custom into a bobber over the winter. Now, I've been looking around for a rear bobber fender for my bike and all I can really find is the Blue Collar Bobbers kit, in which you have to buy the seat so that's about a 700-800 dollar purchase. Not saying I'm cheap at all haha, the kit looks really nice and you are paying for a quality product from them. And I do realize that I will have to change my stock seat, but I might just buy a pan and spring kit to make it myself. Thing is with that kit, I don't want to look like everyone else.
Other than that there is a few others I've seen on eBay that aren't as good quality or looks for myself, but cheaper. And then there is just buying a larger, full rear and fabricating it to my liking I suppose. I'm not a body guy, but if my co-workers father can chop a 32' Chevy into a drag car I might ask them if they can give me a hand.
Just to make sure I am not missing any other sites or styles of rear bobber fenders, you guys have any suggestions or know of any shops that make them?
I did see this wild, sharp fish scale type fender somewhere. Looked pretty neat but I'm not too sure.
Thanks in advance!
