Hey, guys, I just picked up one of these, and it's my first Chopper model build, though I've worked on a few 1:1's here and there. I have the Aces Wild kit, and I am planning on picking up the Crusader next week. My question is, will the rear Fender from the Crusader fit the Aces Wild? The kit fender is too bulbous and sits too high off the tire to bob it. Don't need a front Fender. I need something that fits the radius and curvature of the tire better. I want it to HUG it. I took mine, Raked the front out a couple more degrees, and I am in the process of cutting the rear swingarm off and making new mounts on the frame. (The up-rights should be flat, not curved) then I'll re-attach it with small brass hardware. I'm almost thinking of making it a hard-tail, but I'm not 100% on that yet. I like a more drag-bike style, Long, low, and raked out. Also, I'm using the more curved gas tank, and the FIRST thing I had to do was shorten the RIDICULOUSLY long risers ont the drag bars. Wacking almost 3/4 of the length off them got the snuggled down on the trees, like good drag bars should be.
Sorry, No pics yet. I have lots and lots of work to do yet.
