My frend has a Twinkkie that needed a new licensplate holder and rear light. Made this, this uses the original mounting holes and I didnt need to cut or drill the fender.

Today I helpt my friend to fit the fender on his bike, he changed the rear tyre on his dyna so here is what i did to make the rearfender fit the bike.
I marked the centerline of the bike and cut the rear struts off.
Fastforward to this, where the fender struts are ready welded in place with reinforcments. What I did was to bevel the thick steel because I could only weld it from one side.
Closeup from one side.
From the top.
Ok now for the rear fender, I used a part from a scrap fender to make it wider.
The fender is ready and test fitted on the bike.
This is what we were looking for, you should not see the change on the frame when ready with this.
Just add paint.....
Not a wide ass......
The painter wanted something different for the air cleaner top. I had an old tank that I have cut already. So I used the side from it and made a aircleaner top out of it.
Here it is.
I also made it quite wide to hide the carb an other stuff. Looks good and hand made not some bought part from taiwan ted.

Here are rear fenders that I make. These are built for 200, 180 & 160mm tyres. These are made from 1,25mm steel sheats. And 100% made in Finland no Taiwan Ted parts.
I will be on the Walkka Swap with these. Price 190€ each

Here I start again on new seat, here the paint has been stript from the seat.
These lines helps me when im beating the seat to shape, on this pic the middle of the seat has been changed already.
Some stretching on the front of the seat.
When you work with beating metal like these seats I make, you need to anneal the beated places for easy shaping.
I usually weld the sides, one side is in place and the other side is waiting in the table.
Here the sadle is ready for the holes to be drilled. Two different styles from one seat.
