“Love me Fender” Baden-Baden, Germany based Rick’s Motorcycles has a custom pedigree going back two decades, is one of Germany’s best known custom wheel manufacturers and internationally recognized for its rear end conversions, having been a major player in the single-sided swingarm and fat rear end phenomena of the late 1990s. These new steel fenders for 2018 Softails are one of the results from a design and development blitz as Rick’s wrapped their arms around the new and distinctive opportunities offered by Harley’s new generation of Milwaukee-Eight Softails. They are available as bolt-on rear fender kits for Fat Boy and Breakout models in a choice of 8” for the original rim with 240 tires, 8” with original rim with 260 Metzeler tires and in 9” for 260 Metzelers. The complete kits come with seat base plate, tank cover and mounting kit. Fenders and kits are also available for the 2018 Softail Slim, Heritage and Deluxe for rims up to 6” and 200 size tires. A matching seat base plate is available as an option. For all new Softails, new and “shapely” front fenders have been designed. For the Fat Boy a steel fender with a massive Bobber look perfectly hugs the 160/60 18”. For Slim, Heritage and Deluxe a short, “Old School” style steel fender “follows the curves of the 16” Metzeler 130/90, and our front fender for the Breakout is matched to the contours of the OEM Michelin 130/60 21”, with the Metzeler 120/70 with 21” also fitting perfectly.” All Rick’s front fenders are formed from 2.5 mm steel sheeting and described as being “extremely resistant to twisting or distorting and suitable for further processing.” RICK’S MOTORCYCLES Baden-Baden, GERMANY Tel: +49 (0) 7221 39 390
