pepsX gettin' "jiggy wit it"

.......sorry, I have no pictures of Dan dancing...yet!

My rear fender project is underway. I went down to Dan's shop yesterday to get started, and Dan made a very nice jig (he calls it a "fixture") to hold everything in place. He made that thing before lunch...impressive, to say the least. I have a new-found appreciation for metal fabricating and those that do this sort of work. It makes me want to start purchasing more "toys" and building a shop in the back yard, and then start learning.

Here are some pictures...more will follow as the project rolls along. I have to give credit to Rich (Iwantsnow) for helping Dan and I with providing many details to help us get started...well, to help Dan get started! Rich pointed me in the right direction to get the parts I needed to "copy" his design. I did get to tear up a titanium C model fender, though. When it's not the color of your bike, it's always fun! :P

Dan's jig...umm...fixture!







Me slicing and dicing!







Just a picture of the fenders together...if I was doing it, it would end up like this!

Wow, I'm anxious to see how this turns out. I've been wanting to put a long tire hugging fender on my C, but noone around here to help and no tools or skills to work with so, I'll just be admiring yours.

So that's what the extra inner strut was for. I kept thinking "how in the heck is he gonna get the fender stuts under there?"

Old and worn out.

Very cool looking. I haven't a clue at to what I'm looking at other than it involves a tire and a fender, and making something non-stock, which is always cool in some manner.

So, I guess I won't be asking "where can I get one" real soon...

this is what the "hoped for" end result should be, or close to it.
Iwantsnow did a fantastic job on his, here is a pic of his bike.



and the C-model fender added to the "tail dragger"


all credit goes to Iwantsnow for this project.


sorry, i have no pics of the Crazy Lady that walks into the shop now and then, I think Jason was trying to hit on her.

Yeah, Rich's fender turned out awesome. He already has the "Snomod", so now he has to name his new one, too!

Okay, hot off the press (the camera on my phone...crappy resolution)...this freakin' rocks!!! I'll tell you what...working with Dan is cool! No wonder it only took him a day and a half to get to where we are now! The guy knows his stuff!

Steve...eat your heart out! :P
