Tube Fenders and sliders

the front fenders have copped a hiding the last few times i’ve been out as i seem to have a tendency to put it on some extreme side angles, often folding in the bottom part of the fenders and caving in both sills… so i’ve had enough of that and am in the progress of making up some tube fenders/sliders that tie into some barwork over the rear wheels.

Today was mainly spent getting the tube bent up and in sections for each side. I also managed to get the tube fender bits trimmed and tac’d into place. theres still a heap to do but thought i’d post some progress pics.

Rear mountpoint for the slider. This ties into the chassis-body support under the drivers seat.
