After thinking about it for years, I might actually be ready to pull the trigger and add a flat fender to the garage. A beautiful Harley Sportster and Project RangeRunner need to go, but this is a good chance to get in to a pristine Flattie...
Project RangeRunner has been sitting for a while, as I have been hard at work on Project 'Con Artisit, and with a baby girl on the way, the Ranger doesn't exactly have the credentials to be a good family hauler. I just bought my wife a new car, so that end of the family hauling has been handled (plus 'Con Artist can take a baby seat now and then) and with two motorcycles, it is time to cut the fleet down. The Buell stays and the Harley goes.
I'd love to see the Ranger go to a good home, to someone who will enjoy it and with the proceeds from the Ranger, I can hopefully complete my trail cred by picking up that Flat Fender I have always wanted. The one I am looking at is a very clean '51 CJ-3A, recently frame-offed and updated with Wrangler seatbelts (see, the baby can ride too!), my wife has seen the pictures and approves.
Here are some photos, what do you think? Is it time to step up to Flat Fender ownership?
