Yeah, I think it will look great. It was $159 so, its not the cheapest, but not crazy expensive.

Im thinking of mounting it about level to the axle bolt, that way theres just enough fender for mud and dirt slinging, flames to be painted on and maybe a rear passenger? who knows.

I agree, Ive yet to ever see a front fender that looks good on a springer...although this one looks good

Nice. Bunch of pictures on line how people creatively attached it to swing arm.

Yeah, you basically weld a lower fender bracket to the bottom of the swing arm and make some fender struts to weld on to the side of the swing arm. As well as cutting it to length and cutting a chain recess on the side.
Need to tackle that next.

Looks fine to me. I think I used rear belt , perhaps 2 layers, donít recall. On both builds

I think .5Ē is closest you go. On perfectly rounded to tire profile fenders it looks awesome. Not so much on flat trailer fenders people use.

Tires grow.
Exile guy burned paint on the fender mounting it too close on his discover chopper.

Thanks dude! I'll measure it up but it looks like 1/2" already. Im not a fan of those flat trailer fenders. This one is made by Gasbox which supposedly is made for vintage tires. it looks flat in the pic, but is actually contoured to the tire very nicely.

Im going to have to watch that episode! lol

When my wife asks me, how come I don,t have place for a passenger on any of my bikes?
With a choke in my throat and single manly tear shining in the corner of my eye I say : I will miss you so much on the road , honey,

You know the answer to your question.

Go with what,s the most clean and good looking option....guess which?

By the way , it came to me later, but I got distracted by some other mechanical project , puzzle related to firearms.

You can try to make a universal bracket with 2 points of attachment on the swing arm - so you can plan for a passenger, but the shape of you bent strut might still be a weak point.
I would situate a passenger seat attached from the frame, not swing arm( I would not want to be sitting on a swing arm) . There are cool and clean designs bolted on and off.
