First fork guard, I am doing a modification to it right now. I did this w/ 4 layers of 6 oz 2x2 w/HTE epoxy, it is rigid but has some mild longitudinal play so I added another layer, and another small layer to reinforce the lower mounts. I also opted to make a small piece that runs to the portion that used to bolt down the back portion of the stock fender. I have no idea how that will look but if I do not like it I can just hack it off.
The top section I notched out because I thought it would look cool, then when I test fitted it I needed to notch the lower portion to have good brake rotor clearance. Either way it looks awesome on the bike.
Now I have to learn some medicine before I start on the left fork guard. If the strut thingy turns out fine I will do the same on the other side but integrate it sooner to ensure it is really stable. I am also getting much better at the process in the terms of prep/setup/time management etc...
