I could not find a rear fender or rear fascia for my Street Glide that matched up with the exhaust & saddle bags just right. Being a perfectionist, I was never happy with the look of the stock rear fascia. After adding 4" extended bags, I had to find something to complete the look.
I had this rear fascia fabricated out of 16 gauge. It is 3" longer than the stock rear fascia and slightly wider on the sides. The 3" longer piece I believe compliments the look of the extended bags. I researched this and found this to be the ideal extended length without rubbing while going up steep hills or over speed bumps. My goal was to have it match up with the contours of the pipes and bags perfectly, while filling the side gaps and providing a lowered look.
I like the fact that this bolts on & can be done easily by anyone at home. Plus, it's small enough that the cost to have it painted professionally is minimal.
I plan on marketing these(if there is interest) because I believe this meets an unmet need for these bikes. Will fit Street Glides and Road Glides, PLUS - I can make them work for your application - Fit exhaust contours, no left side cut-out, with or without tri-bar run/brake light, longer etc...
I have discovered the exhaust angles on these bikes are slightly different. In order to have both pipes centered perfectly, I made the hole slightly bigger on the right side exhaust mount and moved it out approximately 1/4". After talking with several shops, mechanics and fabricators, I discovered this holds true with all touring models.
Pictured are: My bike w/ new rear fascia, template of rear fascia without slots for tri-bar run/brake, and side view of template showing how it bolts on to factory bolts on rear fender.
Any interest? What do you think?
