Hello, Had a few question if someone has thes types of stock fenders, I was searching the forum checking out ideas, some say take finders off. But i kinda like the big chrome fenders on my cruiser, Any how, I,m builing a Micargi GTS Cougar & have lke to know if i need to reinforce them ? I have seen the forum on using shrink on the struts , bolts & nylon nuts to replacing rivets. Has anyone had problems with these fenders? I see priratecycles have them on there Micargi builds but wonder if they had this problem? I guess it would be wise, you know better safe than sorry.
