Check out my chop

It took longer than I though. I had to remove a lot of that ribbing with hand tools only. I cut about half an inch off each end of the plate bracket so it won't stick out then I raised the bracket 3/4". Any higher and I'd obstruct the view of my super shiney pipes!

I'm very happy with it. It looks like my plate is floating from most angles.

Looks very nice 3S. Wonder if there is a way to make the license plate light sit closer or more flush to the lic plate? One of the things I liked about the Competition Werkes fender eliminator was it used the stock lic plate light.. but removed the large pedestal it sat on. Since, I have decided that what others have done with simple angle metal and some clear lens material or LEDs looks even cleaner. Not really my favorite time of year for projects. Lots of folks here plan plenty of projects for the winter.. I would just as soon wait until it's warm again.. I don't need the 9er running for daily commutes.. so if it's in pieces for a few days in mid July it's not a problem. I enjoy the projects more in the summer anyway. The point being.. that until it gets warm again.. I ain't messin' with mine. But feel free to continue your projects and post lots-O-pics.

What does a proper rear wheel fender look like?

Looks good mate !!!

It maybe my eyes but the pipe on the left (looking from the rear) needs to be rotated ever so slightly clockwise.

Love that Candy Red !!!!
