    I'm really lovin' the first one!

    The big fenders aren't doin' it for me, but I would have to say that the plate number suits #3 quite well...

    I really like the Indian-style fenders on the silver bike.

    Those are top ten (maybe even top five) of what I've seen on the site.

    thx 1138 (the plate # on bike #3) was George Lucas's first film and it was a sci-fi movie.
    it was also the license plate # on John Milners 32 5 window coupe in american graffiti.

    I imagine that those indian style fenders are fiberglass.
    you can buy a set just like them off e-bay

    Also, THX is now Lucas' next generation surround sound, while 1138 was the cell block where they held Princess Leia on the Death Star.

    great bikes nice builds.
    what is the speed on the grey fender bike?

    they all have a top speed of around 35mph. the silver bike with the shifter handle by the tank has a 3sp rear hub used as a jackshaft. with the 3 speeds the honda gx35 can hit 35 on flat ground.
  14. #3 looks very familiar! :whistling: :jester:

    hey venice. i see you post some on the dark side too.
  16. Hey Cam!

    I've noticed those fenders on the bay for some time. I wondered how they would fit once you tried to actually apply them to a bike. How much work did you have to do to them to get it all to match up? How did you mount them both to the bike? Did the frame separate enough to install them without scratching the paint? Any closeups of how they're mounted? Thanks! Sweet builds!

    i got them from is that who has them on ebay, these are about 1 inch to wide to fit any bike i've found as a bolt on. i have to cut an inch out of the center and glass them back together, for mounting i just weld tabs onto the frame and fork. on the shifter bike i made them wider so they fit outside the frame, those ones are two piece and mounted with tabs and 1/4 turn fasteners. there a lot of work.
