Why would you glue that front fender together?

Why not just tig it?
a few reasons:

i made the bracket by pressing it over a piece of bar stock, the radius of which didn't quite match the fender. but that's all i had. there was good contact with the fender only in a couple spots.

the fender is from, i'm guessing, a moped and it's paper thin. my tig skills weren't up to the task. a welder friend who's opinion i trust said it would have been dicey to weld without ruining it.

i figured high-strength epoxy and carbon fiber should work. it's stronger than steel on a per weight basis.

You could have finished that bike 4 years ago, 20 years ago, or yesterday and it'd still be clean and right.
Thank you. I appreciate it.

Those fenders are awesome. Actually the whole bike is pretty sweet! I bet it sounds pretty killer with those pipes too.
Thank you. Shovelheads sound great!
