I've got exactly the same bike. The PO used what looks like a sawzall to remove the fender. Not the cleanest job.

Heat, razor blade, a little patience and a dremmel did the trick for me.
Integrated tail light / signal from ebay for about $100
I actually left the "holes" for the original turn signals, just in case.....

Both cheap and looks pretty good to me......

Oh yeah and welcome aboard. I picked up my yellow '99 last summer replacing an I4 Honda 919. Different beast all togther. Just a fun ride all the way around!

Nice, clean bike! You're going to love it.
That's exactly how mine looked. Mine had 348 miles on it, with "mild cosmetic damage".
I almost drove off the road a couple times looking at it in the mirror, in the back of my truck.

I haven't been the same since!

Welcome aboard!!

Yeah, even the mini-ceptor feels like a baca-lounger in comparison. Need to retrain the muscles and VFR clipons will help.
