    I can't find any info on it, but I f'ing love it! I already have that saddle, so it'd take just this fender, and drag bars to make my bike look similar. Any ideas?

    It's the Scout Tank Machine by Indian, Paris. Scout Tank Machine | Project Scout

    This is a really simple custom rear fender, a local fabricator can make it for you in a few hours. The brake light relocation looks straight forward, but illegal and not safe (can't see it over the wheel from behind). You'll need to side-mount the license plate and probably the break light and find a place for the blinkers. Cool bike.

    Maybe they should have bought the grab rail that mounts under the saddle, and then mount the light system to that rail? It'd most certainly be more visible at that point, being well above the tire.

    I am the last one to preach safety, and my bikes all have less-than-safe items on them.

    With that said, take a look at the handlebar Motogadget turn-signal (Motogadget m-Blaze Disc LED Turn Signals - Revival Cycles). Someone and I don't recall whom on this board has done them. The brake light can go on the license plate holder off to the left side of the rear axle. The grab-bar IMO will clutter the rear, and the whole point of a bobber is to remove, not add stuff.

    The fender is from Custom Universal Motorcycle Fenders, not sure which, probably the Sportster one.

    I like the gas tank decal. Thinking about flossing my original off and going with a tank decal.

    I am absolutely doing the same, but I am ridiculously picky about the quality of the decal. I'd probably want it airbrushed on, but really high quality artist has to do it. Too much room for error with a stencil.

    Leaning towards one like on a dark horse as I'm trying to black out my horse. But the red face gold bonnet look turns my crank also.

    Yeah for sure! People joke and call my Scout the Dark Pony edition because I was able to get the dealer to switch out some Scout 60 blacked out parts, for the chrome monstrosities all over the 69. Eventually, all the chrome will be gone. It's already satin black like Dark Horse, and I have Dark Horse mirrors on it + Scout 60 black bars. More and more each day. I might do the gold and oxblood red as well, or maybe just gray. Dunno yet.

    Mine is matte black so I don't think I can clear coat the decal. Airbrush would be great but in farmland don't know who to get.

    Wait, what? Are you turning your 69 back into a 60? :)

    Just borrowed some casing covers. No idea why the black covers aren't available in a stock 69. So stupid. I hate chrome.

    Just having fun with you... not busting your horns. If you like all the black, you're still a 60 rider at heart... :)

    No way. Dark Horse rider at heart, just can't afford one, so I'll make my own bobber Dark Pony.

    There are better ways to do it with out the glam of an airbrushed unicorn.
