Sissy Bars and Fender Strut Photo Feature


If there is one challenge that every garage builder has to tackle time and time again, it's how to attach the fender to the rest of the bike. Even though there are some tried and true methods, if you look at a dozen custom bikes, you are likely to see a dozen different solutions. At the recent David Mann Chopper Fest, I took the opportunity to snap a small collection of photos; maybe one will inspire you the next time you need to make one.

Thanks for this timely feature Bill! I just ordered a fender for my shovel chop last night! Gives me some porn to look over!

That super swoopy one with the polished fender would of made me kill someone.

Those are good Bill but the one you built for my bike is the best ever.

the blue bike (with plexi) belongs to Dalton Walker- split image kustoms.

i would love to see more pics of Johnny Vasco's"True Blue"s sissy bar if anyone has some.i saw that chop years ago up here in Grass Valley Ca. soon after his passing .that bike inspires me. I was all over it with my camera like some stupid tourist at Disneyland. That sissy bar is clean,simple,and just right! It lays back at a 45 deg. Above the fender as well as tilt inward kinda like a "compound miter" if that makes sense. Noth'n defines a chopper like a good sissy bar
