So i get on e-Gay lookin at fender's, strut's just thinking about what i'm gonna do with the rear situation, what direction i want to go and all that jazz. i came across some fender strut's that had like 20 minutes left and the title say's Knucklehead Panhead Shovelhead strut's, Good chrome, Good shape. And that was it! i guess the guy was clueless on what he had or just didn't care and wanted to get rid of'em? Anyway's i remember an old black & white article somewhere much like the How-to-rake your frame one i posted awhile back showing how to cut them shorter but put them back together so there not just a trashy hack job, also Kim Boyle (http://boylecomm.blogspot.com/) had shown on Chop Cult (http://www.chopcult.com/forum/showthread.php?t=806) how to do the same and i said fuck it, i'll just do that, it's functional, clean,and i'm getting lazy and impatient, so i was out of town looking at them on my phone and won them for 29 buck's. Cool! Just got them in and i be Damn. i beleive they had allready been done! Am i mistaken? are they original's from something? let me know!!!

So i think this gonna be my biggest challenge. In keeping it a swing arm and making the fender look clean as possible yet functional. i really want it to be able to hold weight, be able to strap shit on & blah blah blah. if i was putting strut's on it would be a no brainer, and i HATE these motherfuckers sticking 14" above the damn tire! hmm...gonna have to get creative. or maybe use the stock struts and fender like it was designed for in the first place? nahhh...FUCK STOCK
