Default Tailight/fender/license plate mod

Here's my First mod that I would like to share.
First I cut the tailight off of a tail/license plate leaving 2 pieces. Then I cut the fender just above the tailight scoop. Next I flattened out the end of the original fender and tacked the cut-out scoop on top to accommodate the very slim tailight. Since the license plate holder was designed to be mounted on the left side I flipped it over leaving the cut edge on the bottom and mounted to the rear master cylinder bracket. (probably chrome this winter) I did have some fears as to weather the light would be bright enough so I bought some Arlen Ness dual bulb blinkers so that i can use as tailight/blinkers. Now all that's left is to bondo and paint!

Isn't there going to be a large gap between the tire and rear fender without the light and license plate? Also, did you shorten the fender at all?

Yeah, If you look at the pics again you'll see I cut about 8" off the rear of the fender so that I could try and keep some of the Hump in it. (last 8" being rather flat) and then i welded the tailight scoop on top. There is going to be a gap but I plan on lowering the bike and even re-mounting the fender if needed. If I'm not happy with the final product I've got some round chopper fenders laying around for plan B.
