Default Rear Fender - How do I get this look

I've been looking/reading/searching this forum pretty heavily the last few months and I've got many of my parts ordered already.

However, I found a fender I gotta have, but I'm struggling to find how it was done exactly.

It's from WyomingWarrior's red bike.

Here's his fender and I'm curious if ANYBODY can tell me how this was done.

I believe it's just a stock fender cut down with a cut off tool or grinder. If you can draw a straight symmetrical line with a sharpie, and have a steady hand, you could do this to your stock fender.

you can cut sown a stock fender like suggested or you can purchase a fiberglass fender

Yep. Stock fender. You can also cut four inches out of the middle and weld the end back on to get the hump.

Just remember. If you do this you will need a new rear taillight option.

OK. So I assumed it was a stock fender, so that's for that clarification.

I'm planning on doing a side mounted plate/taillight option.
I don't think I'll be putting turn signals on it at all.

Does anybody know if this was cut in half, etc., then re-welded, or just cut right from the stock mounting position?

I will PM BTK and see if he can assist.

Well, it looks like I won't be PM'ing BTK.

He's listed as Banned.

As mentioned above - if you are handy with some common tools - do it yourself

I would mark my lines, cut it so I had plenty of room away from my line (leaving the fender longer then desired) and then using a grinder I would work my way towards the line as carefully and smoothly as possible.

If my wife didn't have to ride on the back and I wasn't worried about the water splash, this would be on my to do list.

Thank you for the input. I'm gonna do it myself.
I'll measure and tape off.
