This link should take you to some pics of my high fender. If you need close up of mounting, let me know. Member Cuff had an article on how he did I believe. Very strong and stable at speed.

Falling down is your bodies way of saying you just screwed up.

No pictures but I tried mine at all kinds of heights. Finally decided I liked it best by just raising it up one bolt. Easy to do and it looks decent.

Sorry to bring up an old thread but I've had a couple of requests on how to make my lower fork guards. I threw together a little plan with 'Paint' so it's crude but shows all you need to know to make a set.

Garage
Last summer I decided I wanted a high fender and Cuff was nice enough to give me some pointers. I used his zip tie idea for the fender.




I used a Sewer pipe( I believe 4" diameter) I cut it with a chop saw to get the angle, and used a blow torch to soften up the plastic, to get the bend I wanted to match the tubes.

For mounting I used L-brackets similar to Cuff.

Cuff was VERY helpful to me when making my fender.

Thanks Hawkshot, your bike looks awesome. The paint colors match very well together.
