DB,I am really saddened to hear that. In the past year I have lost a couple of close family members and I undestand your pain. Life is short and you gotta enjoy every second of every day. I also make sure that I tell my family how much I love them every day because you never know which second may be your last.

Banana caliper.. you talking about the rear Harley caliper... I actually checked with Wilwood for an upgrade to fit my bike but they don't make it anymore. I wanted to get a red caliper...

They do make them. I sell them. Check my website store. www.lillianrosechoppers.com and click on the parts store link. Do yourself a favor and stay with black,,,red will not look so great! And if you scroll down the products page, there is a photo at the bottom showing the Wilwood mounted on my daily rider 'Da Shnizzy'

Your bike would be sick if you took down that rear fender, put some handmade bars on her, opened up the view of the motor by getting a small carb stack, tank lift so you can see the rocker boxes, and lose the rear chain guard. You can cut that rear fender and suck it up to the tire like we did on Phil's EDR FXR.

How do you set up the rear fender to keep it from hitting the tire?

the fender struts...take them off and switch them to the other sides. right now they go back then slant up, switch sides and they go back and down...lowering the fender closer to the tire. take fender off, remove rear suspension to get that last bolt of the strut. remove the strut on the left side and move it to the right side and vice versa.

What keeps your fender off the rear tire when you pack someone?
