Hi all. Am new to the forum. I am converting my 96 xj600 into a cafe racer. I am part way through the project. My bike is now road worthy just needing all my trick bits.
So far a have chopped the rear end off, tail they and aftermarket rear light. A set of wide handlebars, single circular headlight taken a set of clocks off a naked Honda. Am after a few ideas on a rear mud guard as I get a wet back when it rains now.

Any and all ideas are welcomed. Thank you.

I will find out what the clocks are off for you I aant remember off the top of my head. I'm thinking one that hugs the rear wheel. I will upload some pictures after I finish work.

The clocks I am using are from a Honda cb750.
