More Work on The Scrambler

I put some different handlebars  (modern motocross bars) on the Scram, today.  They are lower, and have less pull-back.  Plus, they are black.

 After I got the bars on, I started looking at the front fender. For some reason, the front fender has never really suited me.  I was thinking that I might do a shorty front fender, like the Deus bikes always have.  But, I wasn't sure it would really suit the Scrambler profile.

I had a Royal Enfield front alloy fender sitting about, so I test-fitted it, then drilled it and mounted it.  I think I like the longer, skinnier fender better than the stock one.  It looks more "vintage"to me than the stock unit.

Now, I just need to figure out the rear fender.

Looking good! I like the new fender better, too. Looks like a fun bike.

It just needs Jesse cases and an FYYFF sticker.

just sitting around?

looks like we will be riding the same bike! You grabbed the exact same bars/fender on mine. Whoohoo.

I bought the fender for the Honda, but decided against it.

I didn't realize the bars were the same as yours. I just liked them because they are basically Superbike bars with a cross piece.

Our tastes do run pretty closely, don't they?

That bike is looking great! Those little changes are making a big difference. Nice.
