Default Ok let me have it. Good or Bad.

So I decided to put a Kingpin front fender on my Hammer S. The reason with being any crap or water thrown up by the front tyre won't spray up onto the Oil cooler or front of the engine.

Now since I'm a fair weather rider... yeah yeah There's not much change of water being sprayed up in the first place.

Anyway I did it regardless.

So the below picture isn't the finished colour and I also suspect it needs some red pin striping to tie it into the rest of the bike.

Anyway I've love to hear you opinions, be they good or bad on the styling.

Cheers.

It's your bike. As long as you are happy with it, it doesn't matter what anyone else thinks.

Unless you are a poseur that is.

In my opinion well your Hammers got a more modern business-like looking back end,
and kingpin fender throws back to another era.
Honestly I think itd better suit the styling of my Vegas,
And I do ride in the rain.

I like it. In thinking about it/visualizing it I didn't figure it would look good, but once I saw the picture, I changed my mind.

Maybe a Jackpot ass-end?

With the shorty Hammer fender I'm sure you got lots of crap flung up on the engine from the front wheel. Lots of people are not exactly fans of the Kingpin fenders, but they do work nicely to protect the bike... which is what fenders are for.

Looks great, and a touch of red will make it even better.

And if you love it, that's what counts!

I think it looks fine w/the lines of the Hammer. I agree that some red would integrate it w/the overall color scheme. Function w/form.
