Here's something new from Lowbrow Customs


The Rogue Rear Fender: A Bolt-On Alternative for Harley-Davidsons



Lowbrow Customs has designed and produced a custom rear fender that will bolt in place on Harley-Davidsons spanning almost 30 years. The heavy-duty construction, quality, and ease of install makes it an instant classic on custom Panhead and Shovelhead motorcycles.



The Rogue Fender from Lowbrow Customs is a heavy-gauge, steel fender that is bolt-on fitment to 1958 - 1984 Harley-Davidson Big Twins using the included chrome plated fender struts and mounting hardware. Instead of the typical choice to run a stock rear fender or a repop stock rear fender, you can now add some custom style to your moto with ease. Whether a mild custom, chopper or race-inspired performance machine, the Rogue Fender looks right at home while standing up to the rigors of the road. People seem to feel the same way based on testimonials received from Lowbrow customers:



"Built right! The UPS man handed me a heavy box which had me thinking I ordered the wrong item. Negative!! It was the right thing. This fender is no lightweight POS fender. Very thick and substantial. For the people still dedicated to these old gems this is the perfect fender upgrade." - Packrat

"Fit and finish of the fender and brackets is top quality. There was no half way here. Quality is excellent. You definitely get what you paid for." - B. Dub

For more details or to place your order call toll-free 1-855-456-9276 or visit www.lowbrowcustoms.com/rogue



Lowbrow Customs is based in Brunswick, Ohio, USA and has been at the forefront of design in custom motorcycle parts for bobbers and choppers since 2004. The Rogue Fender is just one more unique component that Lowbrow has designed and produced for the ever-popular vintage Harley-Davidson. Panhead pictured built by The Gasbox.

Written by Bill Bryant

I remember being a teenage kid in the 1980's and thinking our generation sucked. Everything from the 50's and 60's seemed SO much cooler. The decade of Flock of Seagulls haircuts and retarded neon clothes wasn't known for it's tastefulness, but now that enough time has gone by, certain artifacts of that period seem kinda neat to me.
