With the 2017/2018 model change, Harley-Davidson has shaped the entire Softail family in a new way: new frame, new engine, new suspension, and much more. Rick’s Motorcycles has responded quickly and developed completely new steel fenders for the Milwaukee-Eight Softails.
Rick’s Motorcycles offers all the required parts for the rear end conversion of a 2018 Fat Boy as a complete kit at a special price. The kit includes a steel fender, a seat base, the mounting material, and the matching attachment kit for the tail part.
Each steel fender is manufactured in a low volume production with elaborate handwork and meets Rick’s usual high-quality standards. The frame does not require any changes to mount these Bolt-On fenders. Integrated, 8 mm-thick struts provide sufficient stability. Furthermore, we have integrated a spacious compartment to store additional electronic components.
Rick’s steel fenders for the Fat Boy models, starting from 2018, are available in either 240 mm or 260 mm tires.
For the attachment to the bike, Rick’s recommends the stainless steel mounting kit, which consists of four screws that fit into the OEM threads. The screw heads are sunk into elegant, rounded covers, reducing excessive stress on the painted parts and offering a particular clean look.
The kit includes a precisely fitting seat base made of fiberglass, which matches the fender and the original frame perfectly. For a harmonious transition from the seat to the tank, an ABS plastic tank cover is also included. The material is adapted to the seat curves and the tank shape, and is easy to paint.
