How to prep fender bungs?

I am getting ready to install my rear fender. I have the standard bullet bungs as sold by wcc. What I would like to do (as opposed to just welding them on) is remove some material so it blends into the frame better. Should I just use a grinder or is there a better method? I think the rear frame rails are about 1" or so and would like to find a tool that cleanly removes the material from the bung so I fits the contour of the frame.

I drilled holes in my frame the size of the bung so the bungs wouldnt be seen sitting on top of the frame. The only bung I have showing is the one that I made with a curve on it to where it goes over the chain to allow for plenty of room for possible chain flap!!

are you trying to cope the bungs to contour the frame rail when welded? a belt sander works great as long as you dont remove your finger tips !

you can use a 1" drum sander on a drill press.

Made my own bungs and coped them using a end mill on the milling machine.

They are 1.750 end to end. I made them longer than needed so that I can face them to the length that I need before they are welded to the frame.

Its not worth my time to sell them unless I made 100's of them.

I have a CFL 4 up that I had to mount 3 bungs for the rear fender to fit.
I would highly suggest to just get a round hand file and get the bungs to fit by hand. It didnt take me that long to get them basically to fit where I wanted to. I would say about 45 minutes for each one.
It is far easier to get the material removed (or coped) than basically any other way, unless you have your own mill.

the bung on the upper left of the frame is also challenging because its mounted on the frame here the frame tube curves inwards, so that has to be done by hand.

Basically, get it where you want, then spot weld it and double check everything!

I have my fender sitting about a 1/4" off my wheel and it looks TITS !

BTW, I have only 3 bungs holding the fender on, but I am never going to have a passenger sitting on the fender, so it is plenty strong enough.
