In keeping with my “do a little something every day” approach, I went down to the basement before work and made up a couple of little brackets to mount the front fender. Since the bike it came from (Honda 650 Nighthawk) had a leading-axle fork, and the GS750ES forks aren’t, the bolt holes in the fender were too far to the rear and at a slight angle when properly positioned over the tire, so the bracket had to compensate for that. When I was all done, the fender is 1″ away from the tire at the rear, and the front is 1.1″. Good enough.

It’s amazing how much attention it takes me to get these sorts of little details correct.
