I am currently modifying a rear Neo fender to install on my 1800C and was considering an X Revolution front Undertaker to match. I called the company and was told it is wider than the stock C and would not look good with the slimmer tire. The photo is from their site which looks like a C. Perhaps it is a wider tire. The bike handles perfect now so I'm not sure I want to go bigger on the front.

Does anyone know of another good option?

Had one on my 240 VTX and it does take some time to mock up as the fender is not true circle cut. But once you mount it in position and move it and move it front to back and up and down untill it looks good then mark and drill your holes. The dimples in the fender that are already there are Not the holes to go by. MAKE YOUR OWN.
iF i CAN FIND ANY PICTURES OF IT I WILL E MAIL YOU THE SHOTS.

THE FENDER WILL LOOK AWESOME.:thumbup:

I have the revolution undertaker fender on my 1800C and it looks good. My front tire is the stock 130/70R16 and there is about 3/4" space between the outer most part of the tire and the fender on both sides.

See the fender on my C in the signature pic below.

Looks like a nice fit

Looks like a nice fit. Not sure why the girl at XRevolution said it will look too wide with the stock tire.

I will send in an order for one.

Thanks for the info and photos.

Based on the photo of the green fender in your post,
that fender is mounted on a C model bike.


Here are some photos for comparison.

The first photo is of a stock C model front wheel and fender
(my bike, photo taken about 2 days after I brought the bike
home from the dealer).



The second photo is of a C front wheel with a Retro fender mounted
over the top of it. Note the chrome fender mounting brackets
are for the Retro fender, but that the C front wheel and tire combo
is a smaller diameter than a Retro front wheel and tire combo
so the C front wheel looks a little like a cute girl wearing her
older brothers worn denim jacket, it is a loose fit, but it looks just fine.
In fact is looks a hell of a lot better than some of the ugly fender
combos that come stock on most of the recent Harley models.


The third photo is of a Retro front fender on a Retro wheel rim and
tire. Note that the Retro fender fits much tighter to the tire that
it was meant to be mounted on.



You might also notiuce that the amount of exposed fork slider
varies in each of the photos.
The first photo was stock fork springs
The second photo had Progressive suspensions GL1800 GoldWing
fork springs installed.
The third photo had G-man's inner fork extenders installed with
the stock Honda fork springs.
