Default Re: Fender brakets anyone?

well I just couldnt wait until the new braces show up (ordered 4) so went for a cruise to check out my pocket bike expansion exhaust I rigged up and coming around the corner to my street I noticed the fender moving bit more than normal. The mount to the forks broke just like so many said it would, not that i was doubting. Never even hit full speed. I am making an L bracket from a piece of 1/2 in conduit that i flatened and hope with that and another fender support bracket to be okay. The rear with 3 mounting points seems to fine. Makes me worry about the few cranbrooks I've sold though.
I did come across a piece of fence tensioner in my back yard and it would work great but it is sooo thick. I'm already out of room on the axle as it is. Guess I'll be making a different mounting location near the axle on the forks. Does anyone think that welding on that part of the fork will compromise its strength? Rather loose the fender than the front wheel!!
