Thoughts on mounting a front fender?

PostAuthor: mr vroom » Wed Apr 24, 2019 3:12 pm

I want to keep the fork brace and would like the fender to be a shorty. Getting stuck in the rain without a front fender is rather miserable.

Get a stock fender and cut it down to what you want.

You already got the 4 bolts there. Shouldn't be too tough to get longer bolts to accommodate a shorty fender. Might take alittle trim'n/finagal'n to get it to fit inside the brace.
