    Need advice on M50 rear fender

    Picked up a M50 recently and got to work on it quickly. I dropped 3" in the rear but the rear still doesn't look quite right to me. I want to give it a chopped/slight bobber look by cutting the rear fender down but still maintain the rear seat. I made a custom side plate and tail light (32 ford). I read a post that mentioned someone using a trailer fender on here and that is how I found this site. Take a look and let me know what you think. Post photos if you have examples or links to others that have done something similar. If there is a aftermarket piece that would work better, I am up for that as well. The blue tape represents where I am planning on cutting. I was hoping to utilize as many stock parts as possible and only chop of the back but since the fender is so thick, I started playing with remounting the fender (Retaining the first bolts closest to seat) and cutting the fender to match the rear wheel arches.

    Custom Harley rear fender- the look I am going for. Simple, classy and functional


    Another example of the look i am going for.


    Rear fender with the stock mounting. You can see how tall the rear fender is. If i just got the back end off, it will look odd.


    Rear fender mounted with first set of bolts, rear of fender is placed further down to fill the gap.



    Alternate view with fender relocated further down.

    Need advice on M50 rear fender

    Going to be hard to keep it like that with the existing side mount struts and customize the shape.

    Heres mine

    The stock rear fender is not metal, so shaving or sculpting is going to be difficult.

    After some additional searches, I don't think I can make the stock fender work. I found the look I am going for browsing through the forum. Not sure what fender he is using but I want to head down this path. Anyone know what vendor this is? I believe the owner of the bike is "Gasman".

    The red bike belongs to Blackie22 - not sure about the black bike.

    Here's Blackie22's original post about the fender:

    That is a sick looking bike! What's up with that front wheel? Is that a second rotor or am I seeing things?

    Looks like a mean streak front wheel also. They have dual front discs.
