Sportster front fender: more work

Unfortunately I forgot my camera going to the shop so all I have are my cell phone pics but they'll do.
Finished smoothing out the welds and the fender is now one piece again. (took 1 inch out of the center)

Next step was to take 1" out of the mounting bracket

Finished the bracket and now fits inside the fender again.

Next was to pull those dimples out for the fork tubes. The fender was too narrow in those spots and hit the tire. All I did was do a very small pie cut, hammered them out and stitched them back together. Its a subtle mod but its clear of the tire now.

Welded and smoothed out. Almost done and its lookin pretty spiffy.
