Chop rear fender

The look of a shorter fender really makes such a difference on the bobber!!
I want a fender that is a bit shorter than the triumph short fender so I'm looking to bring it somewhere to custom chop it. Would anyone know the cost of having it done?

I have had a few quotes varied from 270 - 500 Plus indicators / Side mounted licence plate / brake light. I was lucky enough to find one already modified on eBay for 65. Currently having it repsprayed as the last person who done it obviously liked orange peel paint I’ll upload a picture of it once its done - I will be using Kellermann Atto DF LED Indicator / Tail Lights. They are quite expensive but very effective and extremely small no bigger than a 10c coin.

Check out A&J cycles. They sell a chopped fender and all of the other accessories you will need as well (plate mount, lights, etc)

I bought the triumph short fender and cut it myself and had it powder coated. Total it cost me about $250

Calmer than you are...

Couldn’t agree more.
Chopped rear fender and wet roads = one very dirty jacket & helmet.
Brand new AGV and jacket caked in dirty, muddy water...
But despite that, I would not go back to a full rear fender. I like the chopped look too much.

Wunderkind makes this beautiful rear fender kit. It's spendy, but the lights are integrated into the top of the vertical fender supports, so it's really clean. If my pockets were deeper, and I wanted a shorter-than-the-Triumph-short-fender, this is the way I'd go.

little too much for me. The do look pretty dope but just not what I want to spend my money on.

The A&J ones are pretty nice but maybe a little too short....maybe
