Front fender issue
Written by gibinmich on 6/19/2010 at 10:53 pm

There's a rubber rain guard on the front fender? Are you talking about the
plastic disc covers? If so, trash them and go coverless. I made some brackets
and got rid of the covers. Maybe Dick will sell you his if he didn't use them? I
like the looks better with the disc brakes showing. Pics of my bike without
covers is in the Photos section under bike hauler. I was looking at my buddies
ST1100 and I think that front fender might fit? In fact I think the entire front
end off of a ST1100 would fit on the PC. Ebay anyone?

about 3 places.

wondering if that might be an easier route to take to repair.
