Sorry Joa ,look closer, That's NOT an L bracket.

That's a T HINGE>

To use ANY L-bracket on a springer fork is guaranteed FAIL.
The fender moves with the springer travel, and the fork centertube bolt dont move at all.

I wanted the fenders to stay,so I am experimenting with a T hinge there.

I decided to trust the rear fender tab, and it let go after 3 miles, letting the fender get sorta intimate with the chain down there. One good ziptie to the other side of tab mount got me home.
Now another good ziptie on the other side keeps it centered :~)

Zipties would be a good backup safty for our fenders.
