I saw a rear fender problem coming not long after owning the bike.
The rear fender and license plate are really hanging down and flopped around a lot on rough terrain.
Kind of seems it might break off eventually. So I completely removed this metal bracket which is much heavier than it looks.
It was acting like a huge weight at the bottom of a pendulum.
I just drilled some holes above the old mounting as high as I could and fastened with wire ties.
They will hold till the cows come home--according to my dad---that's a very long time.
I've been using wire ties to mount license plates on my extreme offroad bikes for years----never had one come off.
