The fender is a longer tailed version of a west coast chopper classic fender. Not much difference though.
The horse was first drawn out with a sharpie then after 6 or 7 tries untill it was right, drilled a few starter holes in each section and hand ground it out with some small bits and an air powerd pencil grinder. Afterwards cleaned up with some hand files and very thin peices of sandpaper or cordpaper. No plasma cutter could cut that out that small, if it could I would have been all about it. It wasn't stamped out of a flat sheet, it was carved from the formed peice. Not very hard at all anyone can do it. It measures roughly 8" tall X 5-7" wide from nose to tail. Never really measured it.It should look superb with black paint and a retna burning red LED.
Kevin, our quality control manager at work thought the same thing, lazer cut untill she took a walk to my little playroom and saw the aftermath.
If you try this wear gloves!
Back to paint.

|daimon1054||That does look sweet, I would guess that it was stamped out flat then the fender formed but again just my guess.|

Looks like the result of a steady hand and a plasma cutter to me.
I haven't used my cutter for decorative purposes as of yet, but I am certain it falls within the capability of the machine I have.
Nice work HK.

Two wheeled hot rod art.
This is my bro's bike I've been working on for the past few weeks/months. There are only a few shots here of the actual art and subject of the post.
The rear fender took aproximetely 15-20 hours of work to complete. A custom light enclosure had to be built (not installed). Simple modification do to the ease of installation with the new "plug in" style LED's. Just a simple light box made of 20ga sheet-metal with your old light socket tacked to the inside after removal of original housing. You can have the box chromed or polished (aluminum(larger gage of course)) for better light reflectivity or you could just mount a small peice of mirrord plexi or lexan around it, or with LED's white paint works just as well.
The paint will be HOK polyurethane jet black with a poly clear. Everything else on the bike has been black powdercoated and unrelated to th topic, is either new or rebuilt. Open belt drive, S&S heads ect ect. Paint should be done by the morrow, will try to get more pic's if I can score the use of a digicam for another favor.
