Indian /Drifter fender for the VN 900 classic lt

FINALLY got the custom-designed fender in just before leaving on a 1600 mile ride on the V2K. Will be pulling the wife's front fender off her 900 shortly, make sure this fits, then take it to paint.

After spending an hour wrestling with this long overdue fender, it doesn't fit. Seems the stock tire is appx 1/2" wider than the indentions for the fork tubes to clear. Back to the drawing board. Once this is finished, THEN we'll look at the rear............

Once the problems get figured out, is this something that can be reproduced quickly? When the rear is done I would be fairly interested.

I don't see how they could have looked at an actual vn900 and not gotten it right the first time. Hopefully, I'll see the THIRD version of this soon.
Rear fender? LOL, I will personally make a cardboard and paper mockup myself and sent that to them to make a mold from.
