Finding a Fender

I got into a fender bender and broke my front fender. There's a national back order on it, I can't find it used anywhere. I've called a bunch of scrap yards in neighboring states and nobody has it. I found a place with an unpainted one, but I can't find anyone locally who will paint it.

Looking for suggestions on finding one.

It's for a 2008 Vulcan 900 LT White\Titanium.

I've thought about going to a body shop and having them cut it and round it off but I'd prefer to just get a new fender.

All help is appreciated!

Uploaded a pic of the bike is needs to match.

I know this isn't quite what you are looking for, @redrltx , but it is the correct fender, but not the two color scheme used on the LT.

Thought it may help.

2008 VN900LT - purchased new, 20K plus miles so far. Love to ride every day!

Redritx, a new fender costs 307 and change, but may be unavailable as you said. There are two ways to get a used fender that will color match your bike's fender, either by buying one from a messed up bike being parted out, or from a guy modding his bike who no longer needs the fender. I would advertise far and wide to reach the biggest audience. You should find someone who will be willing to sell you a fender.

Doing all of that. Haven't found a matching bike yet where I can buy just the fender. I actually purchased a new fender for $290 from a website and was informed of the nationwide back order.

Yeah, I saw that fender the day it was posted but decided against it. Holding out for a matching one. Thanks though!

Wow, and still no response! I guess you'll have to be patient for this one.
