Oh yea, its real.

I think that the fender is a Barron custom that has been blended into the frame.
I am working with one of theirs on me bike now.

For some reason I cant play the vid??
But the snap shot looks kick ass! I would defiantly have that fender if I was planning on just being a solo rider. Probably a much cheaper route then getting a sumo. The 200 tire is a wide tire IMO. Honda just made the fender look bad. I would have gone this route if it was available a few months back instead of getting the sumo.
Wish I could watch the damn video!

Figured out how to watch it! Notice the battery problem?! Love the fender! Exhaust.... Not a fan. Sounds good though.

Exactly what I noticed first (besides the chick).
That's exactly how my Fury will re-start if stopped after a long, hot ride and started soon after.
Yea, yea........I noticed the girl first too!! Then the starting problem!;)
O.k, I noticed the fender first.:eek:
I wonder. If it wont start the first two tries then how does it have enough juice to fire it up on the third?

I think it's a back-pressure thing, not a battery thing.
I think when you shut off an engine, it can suck in the exhaust when it shuts down.

And, therefore, I wonder if pipes with proper baffles have this issue! If baffles are restrictive for outbound exhaust, I have to imagine they're resistive to pulling in exhaust at shutoff.

No baffles in my cobra swepts, no starting issues.

I like the fender as well. Would like to see how they blended it in to the frame.

Yeah looks superb, only wonder what has happened with the shock, hardtail perhaps?

Could have pulled the shock and simply welded a pipe in its place.

I called Frankie and he told me they started out using round bar to make a frame then used fiberglass resin to fill it in... when the stater gets warm it has a hard time starting..at least mine does somtimes
