Note: If motorizing a bicycle with fenders you must properly reinforce and attach the fenders before riding. This includes the addition of heavy-duty straps, support screws, thread lock, and pressure-distributing washers. Fenders that are not properly reinforced can break at the connections and fall into the wheels. This can lead to serious accidents, injuries and even death.

It is strongly advised that those who want to fully remove this risk of potential danger ride the motorized bicycle without the use of fenders.

Below are just a couple of the threads with stories about the dangers of fenders.
