Re: Monark II springer fender
What I was pondering was do I attach to the moving or the stationary fork. If it is mounted to the moving fork the tire can't hit it but the fender can then hit the stationary fork. If it is mounted to the stationary fork it just doesn't look right. I may have something figured out but it will be a week until I am back to where the bike is.
As to the quality of the Monark, I think it is of a much higher quality steel and the welds were good but the one I got wasn't straight in the headset tube. I would have returned it but I was cutting it down before I noticed it. A friend that is a master welder fixed it for me. I would check the next one for square before touching it.
I can't see any reason why a hub motor wouldn't work on the Monark. I don't think it would look too good on the front but that is just one mans opinion.
