Front café fender
Fender comes in white or in primer
To my knowledge, no one has attempted a nifty café fender for 650 Yamahas - the type found on 80s Japanese road race bikes. Well, let’s see if this one works for your project. It is dedicated for 650 forks and mounts with stock 8mm bolts. I have no clue if other Yamaha models shared the same forks.
These fenders come in white because I don’t know what color you have selected for your café 650 project. Therefor consider them "painters".
The fender comes out of a three-piece mold. Usually this means a slight unevenness to the part. I have sanded the fender to eliminate most of this but you will have to finish the surface before priming and painting. I have drilled the mounting holes - just use your stock 8mm fender mount bolts.
