Don''t like the seat/rear fender

Hey everyone. Not trying to start a war here, but I have been seriously wanting a smaller HD for a long time now as I am a small guy, I was ecstatic to see that they brought out these little 500's! Except, I'm not sure about the looks of them. I'm not a fan of the large bulbous rear fender and seat. I assume it's just a matter time before someone releases a more traditional seat/fender setup for them, unless someone has done so already? What's everyone else's opinion on this?

The rear fender is hideous....but that's changing as we're seeing more and more people customizing them or modding them.....the bike has only been out a couple years....a little more time and the options for these bikes will be limitless....

Current rides:

2016 Softail Slim S Olive Gold Denim

2016 Street 750 Vivid Black

1998 Honda Aero Black/Silver

I'm not a fan of the rear fender. I have definitely seen worse though! The fender eliminator kits help a lot but ultimately I want to replace the entire rear end with a Chappell customs cafe seat. Just waiting to cut the rear frame until my warranty is up

You can spend under $300 and change the look of a street 500/750 a little or a lot depending on what you want to do. That Is what this Harley owner happy about owning a 750.
