Thanks guys.

MarcinG: The seat is cusommade. Plastared the seatpan myself with flassfiber. Then left the seatpan to a shop that works with carseats, to have it padded and covered. Turned out really nice.

Heres a few closeups of the paintjob. Taken just before clear coating i think it was.

Fantastic looking job Twenty 2.  

Hey Jim, is that a custom pillion seat? After riding to Germany clinging on the back, my wife would love that!

perza80: Tried to get some pictures to explain it but it wasnt easy to get good pictures where it all was visable.
what i have done.
Made 2 brackets with milled holes in them, and welded them to the swingarm. need to be milled holes so the fender can be moved when chain is tightened.

To get the fender fixed in the front i used a shaft about 10 or 12mm in diameter.  cut it in to 3 pieces, one threaded holes in both ends, the long one. Should be allmost the same lenght as the distance between the rear shocks. The reason i choose to make it in three parts was to be able to fit it without removing the rear shocks.

The other two have holes all the way through, a diameter 0,5mm bigger then the skrew that should fit in the threaded part of the shaft, Think i used M5 threads and the holes where made 5,5mm. The complete lenght of the three shafts put together should be the same as the distance between the brackets welded to the swingarm.

Made 2 special washers to be mounted on the outside of the bracket to hide the screws a bit.

Put the fender in the position you want, i used ½" hose as a distance between the wheel and the fender to get enough space there, assebble the 3 pieces of the shaft and put it in place so it goes against the fender - Weld it in place.

For a momentum arm i welded chain togheter. Dont think in need to explain that further Wink
To fit the momentum arm to the rear part of the bike i made a new distance that sits between the wheel and the swing arm. to fit the momentum arm in that distance i decided not to weld it but instedad make a bracket that is a half pipe that have the same inner diamater as the distance have outer diameter and  just fix it with skews.

Some pictures that might come in handy.

Front part.... bracket, shaft and washer


Rear part: Distance and half pipe assembled
