NOTE -These fender are very modern looking and you order the basic colors you want. You wont be happy if you have a retro look in mind... Read on...
-Play around with the look you want before cutting anything, but by using 2 complete sets or 4 pcs. of these strong inexpensive featherweight and indestructible fenders your bike will look great by building a full plastic fender vs a goofy half fender.
One could also do bobbed short plastic fenders if your just going for a cool look that really finishes of any Motorized bike in my opinion for just 11 bucks and about 2 hours work.
NEEDED 2 sets pf plastic half fenders
Hacksaw- file-sharpie marker-dremel with a small 1 inch cut off wheel-safety glasses- Philips screwdriver - small metric wrench - bracket material steel - hammer - vise to bend 2 brackets
FOR A FULL FRONT FENDER to Attach to a Springer type fork or triple tree style fork. using the center fork hole for the fender attachment points( this will work event if you have a squeeze brake going thru the hole.
NOTE for a beach cruiser fork installation should be close to the same but you may have to adjust for the extra thickness of the fork)
1 Step one is remove all the hardware, screws from the 4 pieces and save.
2 Grab a front fender and a rear fender and measure off and mark 1 1/2" off the wide part of the fender and cut off excess with the hacksaw (cuts like butter)
3 Do the same to one of the rear fender pieces but mark and cut off 2 inches.
4 Toss the adjustable seat post thingy with the plastic clamps in the junk box.
5 Make 2ea. L brackets that match the 2ea. L brackets you will already have so you have 4 total. Use similar material in thickness and size
6. Using a dremel cut off tool grind a 1/16" slot as shown in pictures wide enough for the L mounting brackets to pop thru the top of the fender as shown in photos. The silver bracket is my homemade one.
7. Flip the fender over and using a 1/8" drill, drill thru the existing bracket hole into the plastic fender. Screw the brackets to the fender using the existing hardware. Use blue locktite.
7A. Test fit the 2 halves of what will be the new front fender. The fenders will over lap about a 1/2". Use the rear part of the front fender to be the top piece in the over lap.
8. adjust anything after test fitting.
9. For the hollow suspension forks add a spacer like a over sized nut just to fill the hollow space area so the L bracket will bottom out on something solid on the back side as many of these suspension forks have a concave area.
10. Again... did you remember to use lock tight blue on all nuts before installing!
11. After installing front and rear half of the front fender you can bend it with your hand into exact final position.
12. After the exact look and clearance is achieved you could pop rivet the two halves together using small aluminum pop rivets if wanted.
just repeat what you did for the 2 halves to make the full front fender and decide what you want it to look like before cutting.
keep in mind the rear of the bike section will throw most of the water.
so I will opt for a super short down section by the seat down tube and a bigger rear section for the rear fender.
again...Play around with the look you want before cutting anything but by using 2 sets of these strong inexpensive featherweight indestructible fenders your bike will look great by building a full plastic fender vs a goofy half fender.
One could also do bobbed short plastic fenders if your just going for a cool look that really finishes of any Motorized bike. I love mine and as soon as another set comes in I will do my full rear fender in a jiff.
I am sure many guys will figure out their own way to attach these 2 fender half's to make one beautiful feather light fender. this is the way I did it.
