Will a vn750 front fender fit a 2006 900 classic?

If so, what years? Working on my project bike and would like to find a smaller, slimmer fender than stock. Thanks all

I'm thinking No...

But I can check the fitment on my Custom later this week. Not sure if the width of the forks is the same between the two.

As for the years, the VN700/750 fender was the same in size and shape through all years of production(1985-2006)
--The exception being the rare Tour Pack fenders.

I'd rather wake up in the middle of nowhere then in any city on earth.

That would be awesome man, I really appreciate it! Feel free to post back here and I'll get the notification by email once you find out.

Thank you!

So... After holding my VN750 front fender up to the VN900 CUSTOM fender.

I'd have to say that getting it to work would be a MAYBE
It will not mount straight up, you would have to fabricate a set of mounts similar to the ones on the custom.

Also, you have to keep in mind that the VN700/750 only has a 100mm wide stock tire. While people commonly push it out to a 110mm tire, that's still significantly narrower then the stock 150mm tire on the VN900 classic.

If you're playing around with the idea of different wheels as well, the modification might be feasible, but In my mind, it's something that would be better suited to the custom model due to the narrower wheel.

I'd rather wake up in the middle of nowhere then in any city on earth.
