Does anybody know how they could of got the original fender down so close to the tire ?

Or is it really the OEM Fender ?

I really wish i knew who owned it so i could talk to him/her.
Cheers
AL

You need an air-ride system to lower it. Cannot be ridden lowered unless you don't mind a very bumpy ride.

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

Thank you.

That answers that.

Back to the first thought, Fender attached to the swing arm.

It would have to be air ride or it was converted to a hard tail. The fender isn't mounted on the swing arm; if it was the seat would move up and down with the rear wheel.

What really makes this bike is the great color and all the chrome.
But the bike would be nothing with out that tan seat.
