    I'm thinking you need a wider tire.

    Don't have one for this bike. Plus basically nothing else on this bike is stock so why would the fender be. Lol

    I'm not really a bobber guy but this build isn't bad. Maybe it will give you some ideas.

    Looks like he used a front fender from another bike (a larger CB perhaps?) for the rear.

    ^^^me either on the bobber thing, but at least that one isn't a hardtail - not bad as they go. the fender width thing is why I went with an aftermarket 5" fender on the rear of mine, stock fender is a bit too wide for the tire

    I've decided to hack way at the original fender idea I had with tin snips and a grinder and I'm going to shape it and mount myself. Will update as I work on it

    I'm really digging that fender in the video! The nakked tire look with the convenience and safety of a fender. Best of both worlds!
