Fork Brace

I can't believe what a cool fork brace I was able to make out of the stock front fender off the honda 650. Underneath the janky sheet metal work was this thicker fork brace. It had spot welds that attached the thinner sheet metal but was quite easy to grind through and clean up. I am lowering them about .75 inches so I had to add two half circles of sheet metal to the inside areas. Now I just have to retap the holes but should look good when done. Also have a hole drilled on both sides so I can run the brake likes up the fork leg on the insde and attach a clip to hold the line out of the way and make the lines clean.
