Rear Fender Cover

Hey!

I have the „problem“ that when I sit on the bike the belt and back side of my waistband and /or jacket rub on the rear fender while riding - right after the seat ends to the fender.
I like the look of the bike and also like the riding position but it looks a little shitty because the paint is damaged at said position.

So because of that I was thinking about to cut out a metal plate in the shape of a tongue, bend it into the curve of the fender, chrome the part and rivet it to the fender. In this case, I would have solved the problem, can hide the rubbed down paint, get a cool look and not necessary anymore to repaint every year the rear fender.
What you guys think. Has someone done that too? Some pics? Only thing I found in the www was… http://lifeonthebluehighways.com/fil...09/jjames2.jpg

You are already chafing the paint.Chrome is going to chafe also.Maybe use stainless or even same material as seat?

cool looking, clean bike.

I think i would rather use better curved seat pan( look how cfl dudes do it all the time) perhaps you can curve yours a bit more? Or raise it up a bit, with small springs?[killing 2 birds]

patching the fender might be cheesy rig- it might betray your obvous intentions too.
Although i don't exclude it to to be done tastefully...

@STEINBVG Yes, you might be right, but yes... better to this about this a littel bit before drilling some wholes in the fender.
Winter is coming, so there should be plenty of time to think about it.

@Am4wag Thx man, I have to make some good pictures and post them here.

Since you have some chrome on the front and sides of the bike then it would not look too bad to do like you are talking about however like said it will scratch as well. You could maybe have a piece of leather that matches your seat put on to the back of your seat that would over lap onto the fender and would also close the gap at the rear sides as well. another option could be to (like suggested) modify your seat pan to mold the rear of the seat onto the fender without having to change the seating position itself. You could do this in fiberglass which is relatively easy to do

Maybe a quick fix would be to have a piece of vinyl cut that matches your paint as much as possible and have that put where it scratches or 3 m style clear cover?

nice ride

Stick a rubber pad on the fender when your riding.
