So, I was wondering what the Standard fenders would look like without the black plastic skirting. To find out, I opened up the Configurator, screen-captured both fender types, then layered the Retro fender underneath the Standard (after deleting the skirt). Even though I didn't bother photoshopping out the Retro fender, I think it gives you a pretty good idea of how cool the standard fenders can look without the skirt. But the lines on the Retro fender also add some pretty need flare, don't you think? As a note: I think going without the skirt might cause rocks/mud to get flung all over the side, so it's probably a bad idea. But it looks cool!
