Now add a front fender, which it needs to be practical, and everything changes.

But a nice build nevertheless.

Gosh Welsh, that clumsy remark has cost you your somewhat decent reputation you had in my opinion, if only due to your use of Ingelis.

That alloy mudguard - not fender - mudguard, is what makes the bike look right. Without it, it would look stupid. Mount a tiny tail light on it, add some minimal indicators and a similar front mudguard - not fender - and you've got a great street bike.

If such were back to the future, then the future would really be looking good.  8)

But you need a front mudguard-not fender.

Like Welsh said, an alloy item, or even the steel item like that found on the Yamaha DT1/2/3's.
