Fender Bracket and Fender Chop

On Saturday, I made a fender bracket out of the same 1/8" x 1 1/2" steel angle that I made the license plate bracket out of.

Here it is a little cutting and grinding later.  The section that will bolt to the fender is 4" across while the part that will bolt to the swingarm is 6" across.

Here is where it will go, connecting the fender to the swingarm.I will probably use rubber washers or grommets between the bracket and fender in the final assembly.

On Sunday, I drew two lines on the fender, one where it extended below the swingarm and one where the top of the bracket will touch.  Then I pulled the fender off the bike and and took my cutting wheel to it.

Then I drilled 3/8" holes through the bracket and fender.

I still need to even off the bottom of the fender but I should be able to get to that later this week.
