Your work on this fender is inspirational and I will do the same thing this winter.
I wouldn't be myself if I didn't try to push it further though so with that in mind I will be actually taking a mold out of the rear one and will attempt re-shaping into taildragger.
They're way too expensive so I'll make my own.... and besides "my own" sounds so much better.

Here it is with a rub down and 6 coats up to now Very Happy  now I've just got another rub down so it's silky smooth :aghh: Then another 2 coats tomorrow (8 total) and a few days to dry off before rubbing down and buffing up.

Hey Sim, re the choice of rear light, have you considered some little torpedo ones mounted to the fender struts like in marcins taildragger piccie?  Not sure where you'd get them...

Thanks for your kind comments guys Clean Rear Fender .......... 2009 Suzuki C800 - Page 2 433968 I love the look of the bikes rear end now and even surprised myself with the results  Very Happy This mod hasn't gone without it's setbacks though?? When I first filled it and got it all primed up ready for the finishing coats, I left it perched on the workmate in the garage thinking all would be fine and dandy? When I returned from work on Monday evening, Calum my stepson had removed his push bike from the garage, In doing so, he slammed the garage door knocking the fender off it's pedestal onto the highway peg of the bike Clean Rear Fender .......... 2009 Suzuki C800 - Page 2 249703 Resulting in a crack and dent to the existing filler from when I removed the reg plate! Boy did I moan about it Clean Rear Fender .......... 2009 Suzuki C800 - Page 2 89218  It took me all Saturday to get back to where I was originally lol Probably a blessing in disguise really, I was never 100% happy with the filling to the reg plate removal, So this time I got it right Very Happy with the added bonus of a day chunnering Clean Rear Fender .......... 2009 Suzuki C800 - Page 2 2740622253  Thanks again guys Clean Rear Fender .......... 2009 Suzuki C800 - Page 2 3498837457

Opinions please, I'm thinking along the lines of sinking 4 LED micro lights into the fender, 2 for back light and 2 for brake light, each micro light contains 6 LED's and seem pretty bright, I was thinking of having them in a line with the two outer ones for back light and two inner one's coming on for more intensity when the brakes are applied, I'm open to opinions though, I'll darken the lens with lens tint so they're black when not lit, is the lighting idea legal? is this lens tint legal? or should I just go for a light above the side mount reg?

Something new and unique so I like it.
But won't it visually shrink the fender? I mean having a line down the middle will create that illusion.

I keep reading unoficial stuff that says it has to be EU marked but I believe that is wrong.

Dunno Marcin? I was hoping they wouldn't be really visible when not in use, the outer lens will be flush with the fender and lens blacked out hopefully :what1:

I got 4 LED strips over my bikes rear wheel area and the wires are a lot thinner than those and they have done several thousand miles OK. My lights wires are just like the ones that you can see in Sim's picture but without the outer sheath.

I think so Mal, the wires are covered in a reasonably thick plastic sheath, as for the lights, they wont actually go through the fender, they're positioned at the lowest point of the filler from the light removal, and they'll only sit 6mm into it, to bring the surface flush. Clean Rear Fender .......... 2009 Suzuki C800 - Page 2 3498837457

With a bit of imagination you could use one of these LINK and use the same leds as parkers as well as brake lights. You would need a relay so that there is 12V on the white wire when the brake is not in use and the 12v is removed when the brake is applied. It could be done with a transistor but you need to have someone that is good with a soldering iron to do the job.
