rear fender is welded to main frame..... it can be replaced if a suitable NOS piece is available and a good panel beater/welder is on hand
this one was stressed cracked on one side due to bent fender.... so a perfect donor for this project PCS Daytona
I appreciate the sentiment Lefty & 76Twin put forth, this donor was chosen exactly because the rear fender couldn't be saved economically
unlike the 5 or 6 previous CA95 or CA160 builds we have done ( one in work now, shown below)
Well, I will say that my Dad once did that on a '64 CA72 - well before the term bobber meant anything more than a float used for fishing. The bikes were pretty much current at the time and certainly not endangered models like today... but it was my Dad's rules and choices back then, I was just a helper and learning the trade at age 14. Didn't turn out too bad but then, my Dad could do great body work and paint too
