Update

Got the seat finished!!! I'm very happy with it. I have some nickle and dime stuff to do (rear sets, frame plugs, etc) but other than the wheels, she's pretty close to being done. He some pics.

Weapon !!! - the seat looks brilliant with the touch of yellow to compliment the bike. What are your thoughts on a rear hugger? IMO, I would like to see one to balance the front guard and create the clean rear? Irrespective, great work !

I wonder what a short hugger might look like (e.g. take off 6-8" off the end?)

Perhaps the shortened hugger in yellow or the rear wheel in yellow to balance out the frame

One thing I do know, There will not be anymore yellow on the bike! More than likely, If I keep the hugger....It will be painted black to match the other fender. Here's a pick of my next project bike.

I like it! Brutales flick enough shit up in the wet as it is so some sort of hugger will be a must unless you like a wet and shitty back. Check out the Kiwi chicks pics of her dragster sans hugger.

Cheers

Guys, this bike is more about show...than function. I never ride in the rain....and very rarely get caught in the rain. If I put a Hugger on, it will be because it looks better!
