Full dresser guards

This is a late model XVS400 Classic and I love the look. Does anyone know if those guards can fitted to a standard late 80s XV535? I'm thinking the forks on that bike look wider.

Michelle:

I agree I like the look as well and yes those forks are wider. I am surprised that there are a number of smaller engine bikes that resemble full dressed road bikes. I have seen models such as the one you show pictured in a 250cc size . I can't imagine the bike could get up to a cruising speed especially with a passenger.

I found this one by Harley Davidson
