    Default Narrow bikes

    Hey. I'm looking for ideas for fender and exhaust on narrow old school bike. You can post your bikes here with narrow handlebars, mid pegs etc. I cant decide with what should I combine my rear en:, flat fender or round fender, p pad or only springer seat and i'm not sure if exhaust should be simple as shotgun exhaust or something fancy. Any ideas? Cheeeers. 🤘

    depends how big you are, my ironhead chop was super skinny but im 6ft 2 and 220lbs. When I stood up i had to check the bike wasn't still in the crack of my ass. I prefer my bikes with some meat on their bones these days!

    Anyways, for fender I like the Manta fender lowbrow did with the kick up at the rear. I ran the skinny one for an 18 rear wheel. In keeping with the skinny theme you could go short staggered pipes or high n tight shotguns tend to look best. narrowed z bars or drag bars on a set of dogbone risers / clamp and a cobra seat mounted to the frame.
    mid pegs and some decent ground clearance, your pretty much set

    HH,

    How long are he tubes on that bike, I am thinking that is a stock rake. I like the stance a lot.

    Ah- don't be fooled-they are stock, but the blocks under the bike have raised the front by a couple of inches at least.
    Got some other pics somewhere..

    My old shovel. Speed club high mids with custom controls and very narrow drag bars. Was super narrow but almost unrideable for me being 6'3" and 240. My current shovel has stock mids and they're way better.Click image for larger version.

    I used speed club mids on my last two shovels, also putting them on my current build. Kick shift on all three as well. I'm 5'9" 160 so high mids work pretty well for me. I have used a few different brake pedal setups. I have ran narrow T-bars and pull backs and have narrow T-bars going on my current bike.
