C'mon man, be creative with your old fender or get another one. Every time that I see a factory bike with the front fender removed it makes me think that the owner is a young punk who wants to be a rebel bit cannot afford to do it right.
The same goes for chain/belt guards or rear fenders removed.
Just to be clear; I'm not calling you a punk. I just think that your bike is calling you a punk and you can't hear it (you're probably going deaf from those straight pipes).

Vambo, a c'mon man and a punk call out is not constructive... Leave legit criticism and we will respect it. Volley bombs and we will burn you. Opinions are always relative. Yours was better than sir douche.
You asked for opinions.
I gave mine (in which I clearly stated that fenderless bikes make me think of punks, not you).
You got offended and told me that my opinion is not welcome and you called me a punk for giving it.
Then you followed it up by stating that opinions vary.
Take it like a man. You don't need my approval, why then can't you disregard my disapproval? After all, you asked for it.
Fair enough he did ask for advice and got it. That being written name calling aint achieving much beside a response and if you called me a punk those would be the last words coming out of ure cakehole, if in real life not online. Dont get offended and if you do who give a rats ring. In conclusion, we are all different ages and if one chooses to run without a front guard well nature will teach the realities. As for your english inferring a punk if you do this well he done it so its punk or not and dont back track amigos (am learning the new language).

Reason: anger management
We all have our views of what a cool bike looks like. To each his own I say. I think the OP's bike looks cool, though I am not a fan of the fender-less look. But truly who cares what I think. I would be more concerned about the damage on the frame.
Well first of all thanks for all the comments Let me see if I can answer these all As for big spit I have it haven't had a chance to use it
As for the forward controls their custom made by a guy in Pennsylvania if you want his info shoot me a message
As for the damage to the frame I had CFR 2 into one exhaust on there That's what caused the damage to the frame and I haven't had a chance to clean it up yet On a side note I had to change the exhaust cause with the air ride the exhaust drag the ground on every right hand turn
As for the front fender I didn't like the looks haven't decided what I'm going to do yet Same goes for the belt covers
As far as the pipes being coated It's black powder coat
What's again thanks for the comments but remember it's a work in progress
Its always a work in progress..........
I don't know what happened and people just like stirring sh!t but to me it would have been more constructive to say "I don't like bikes without front fenders" instead of trying to slam your opinion down somebody else's throat by being rude. Gary is a great guy and is doing a lot of work on his bike. Whether or not it is your cup of tea, it is his. I think it looks great (other than the rust thing which he is fixing).
Present : 2013 Ember Red Night Rod with mods to come!
I got the forward controls and license plate frame From a guy in Pennsylvania named Keith He had the same problem we all do when were tall He couldn't find them so we had a made Is machinist has all the specs and he will gladly make them for you and sell them to you I paid $700 for the controls And the license plate frame It does have an LED light in it And I must say it fits very well It mounts perfectly to the stock shocks But with my air ride I had to modify the spacer But it was no big deal If you want Keith's contact information email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Its always a work in progress..........
