Default Vulcan 500 Bobber

So I decided to try and bob my 09 Vulcan 500. Problem is nobody makes any after market parts for the bike. Does anyone have any clue what rear fender I could use to bob? If slight mod's need to be made that can be taken care of, but what would be the closest fit? Also if anyone has ay tips cause I am new to this that would be greatly appreciated. thanks in advance

The front fenders of many bikes make a pretty decent rear bob fender...the ones from Viragos are particularly good in terms of a flat mounting area on the top of it

Deadliving99 where did you get those handlebars.. And did you have to modify the cables or wires.. Or buy longer ones?
