Indian /Drifter fender for the VN 900 classic lt

This makes round 3......................still not right, but I can fix it from here.
While this version DOES clear the tire and bolts right up, the caliper cover isn't deep enough. Tomorrow, I'll get some longer bolts and cut some spacers to make the caliper cover stand off far enough to allow the necessary depth, then have to cut "something" to close the gap.

Got some nylon spacers and longer bolts to make the caliper cover stand back from the fender side to allow enough room (and additional cooling !) for the caliper. Used a dremmel to fine tune the caliper cover to clear the stock brake line bracket. Goes to paint tomorrow, pics to follow, hopefully soon.

I DID post pics, guess in a different thread.
Since I am at my MS home and the pics are in my TN computer, try this.
