Fork brace leather

Like many, I dig the look of a fender-less front end but hate the remaining mounting hardware on the fork lowers. Solution: drilled out the rivets on the front fender and kept the mount to use as a fork brace of sorts. There was an unsightly hole in the top and a dip in the sides so I made this top cover out of leather and did a bit of tooling to finish it off. Completed and bolted it on with some Chicago screws.
