The transport cops come into my work from time to time and they've never said anything about the seat or fender... They've had a go at the pipes but never the fender.
@Wallaby thats good to hear. Im going to check out my local bike wreckers this weekend but if all else fails i think i might go back to plan A of BCB fender. Have you been pulled over on the bike before and they havent looked twice or just lucky enough not to be pulled over yet? Also which seat and rear light set did you go for?
Any pics?

Bobber fenders in QLD?
@luke2269 I've been lucky enough not to be pulled over (I ride every day so I'm probably due) but, as I said, when I've spoken with them 'unofficially' they've asked about pipes but never even mentioned the fender.
I can't remember what BCB call the seat I got but it's the bigger size in dark red. It's a beautiful seat. As for lights... Like you, I was worried about getting attention from the law with a side mounted plate so I sourced (probably from eBay) a sparto (limp dick) and some matching indicators.

I was looking to turn my 650 classic into a bobber but after looking at the tmr website at standards for motorcycles and modifications I have noticed how hard it will be to find bobber fenders that meet the requirements but still look good. Originally I had planned to get both front and rear fenders from Blue Collar Bobbers, the front fender seems like it would meet the requirements but the rear fender is too short. Anyone know where I can get an aftermarket rear fender that would meet the requirements or am I going to have to cut up the original. Also the fact that I need to get the bike certified by an engineer after I fit a solo spring seat is annoying. buggers. :) Also if anyone has a bobber or knows someone with one I would love to see some pictures of legal bobbers in qld.
Thanks,
Luke
