If the rear fender hugs the rear tire, there's no room for the suspension to move up and down. The only way is to connect the fender to the swingarm while hugging the rear tire, but the fender is no longer connected to the seat. A good idea of exactly what this would look like, Google "Harley Rocker-C" and take a close look at the rear. Of course now that the fender is connected to the swingarm and not the seat, there's gonna be a space between the fender and the seat, that way when your suspension travels up and down, your seat doesn't move along with it. It's all about preferance, some Harley Rocker-C owners didn't like that look, so they purchased a kit that connects the fender to the seat, but the downfall to this is, the fender no longer hugs the rear wheel.
Just put a straight bar, with clevis mounts in place of the stock shock, bar to be cut to just the right length so that the fender hugs the tire. 'Course now you've got what we used to call a "hard-tail"; a real bitch to ride. LOL

Cheers
