Default Re: Schwinn Point Beach safety issue, good fix?

I took another approach on the fenders on my Schwinn. I went to TSC and bought some 1/8 x 3/4 strap steel and bent it to the same shape as the original fender braces. Bolted and loctited new bracket to fender. Took a grinder and removed rivets holding the flimsy fork mount and made one of the same 1/8x3/4 stock ,made it about 4in long on under side of fender bent to shape ,drilled and fastened with a couple 1/4 bolts and again loctite. Now I have a very strong fender and not worried about it failing and eating the front wheel and me with it.
