What do you think of this rear fender?

I am leaning toward getting one of these. The width is correct and I kinda dig it being ribbed ... for my pleasure.

I like it. Maybe trim blunt cut end so that it comes to more of a point (don't make a V because they just get tore up again and again). As far as the rib being there for your pleasure...what the heck are you doing? No suitable partner? LOL

LOL whenever I hear "ribbed" that just seems to be the first thing I think of.

If I had that, I'd want to cut a zig-zag pattern at the bottom of the fender on each side of the rib. then cut the rib into a point. It just looks too plain if I were to build something.

If it rumbles
It's gotta be good.
