Re: Caution! Fenders are Death!
Fenders aren't unsafe ...anymore than handlebars or seats are.....use inferior parts though or pieces designed around a cruise to the store pedaling and made different.. Motorize em and find out I guess.
Pre checks of flimsy just means flimsy is attached still....better parts are needed and for most of the builds I've seen,a whizzer fender and braces is an improvement and aren't hard to find.
I can't ever remember one of the hundreds of mopeds I've seen ever tossing a fender either..they have wound up two smokes shaking away too..and what shakes more then a Harley? They have fenders
