Default Re: Caution! Fenders are Death!

Yes, poor wording, but motorcycle factories have been putting fenders on vibrating frames for over a hundred years - why couldn't we?

Went thru this in 60s & 70s trying to get fenders to stay on choppers with nice hidden mounts - just took some work is all.

The 2 most important things to learn before doing much with these bikes are:

do not get in a hurry

do not get lazy

if something doesn't seem right, take it all apart and redo it (sometimes over & over again) until it does seem right

in the end. you can't blame crappy kit parts or crappy chinese bicycle parts for the work YOU did - if you can't deal with those parts, then use others or don't do this work

</end old fart rant>
Sometimes I sets and thinks, sometimes I jes sets.
