    most fenders, more for water spray, some Debri, most rear fenders on sports, start at top of tire.

    tractor trailers, have to be within 8" of ground. I've seen the tractors only have flaps.

    fenders to keep you from touching moving tires, would seem important, all belts needed gaurds, for passenger safety of there feet.

    a set of low pro, tire hugging fenders, painted black, hard to see from far away, they won't hurt you re look. can't even see my front fender Click image for larger version.

    I love that red trike, you don't see those every day. Did you build it? I don't know if I've ever seen one quite like it.

    I'm currently fabricating fenders using the metal from my old oil furnace. I'm a little worried about the 8" from the ground thing though, I took my cues from the fenders on the trailers at Tractor Supply. I have a lot of work into them already, I think I'll roll the dice. If they don't pass they're easily removable and I'll just make another set.

    Here's one of the fenders I'm working on. I can't imagine the guy who inspects it will look at it and say, "Nope, not good enough". Maybe I should mount an axe handle to the frame to encourage cooperation.

    Man, the more I look at that red machine the more I like it. The 80's Corvette wheels, the insane rake that seems to defy physics. Do you have a build thread or more pics of it anywhere? What engine is on it?
