I used stainless 4mm button head cap screws with flat washers on both sides with lock washers and nyloc nuts.
I also ordered from Bicycle fender braces these are stronger than those stock one's.Did front and back.
Rear fender isn't as sketchey as there's three mounting points.I green loctited all assembled fasteners.

I did the same thing with my throttle,but I used a roll pin instead of a screw.
I also moved the shifter to the left side and bought a dual pull brake lever from Pirate Cycles and put the brake lever on the throttle side.
Nice job.Kip.
Hey Kip, Thanks for the info and advice. Do you have any links with pics of your build? I'd love to see your bike and the mods you mentioned, thanks!
