made matching titanium fender for front of lightweight rd. english wheel and lots of time (my friend david has lots of metal working experience and insisted we do it). Very pleased with result. took hours, and i learned a lot. >:D



had to use shrinker to get side lip down to pull radius over main arc.



now i can quit finally getting pelted with road debris. lol. (actually want that bad)

 

cold nights = extra shop time.

That Mosko stuff looks to be the bomb.

Ain't farkling fun?

Looking forward to seeing what you've put together, and of course, sampling a brew or two.
