Yes, the front fender is riveted to the stock fork brace. I thought it was just a flimsy mounting bracket up to now, but the Puch factory put an actual fork brace between the forks and riveted the fender to it. It will need to be drilled out, and the new brace will probably need to be drilled for the new rivets.
I don't think I have the facilities at the moment for this large of a project. Since I'm already going to leave town next week; and since I'm going to be lodging the moped at NYC Mopeds in Brooklyn, what if I just have the forks shipped there? Maybe they'll get tired of looking at the moded with those EBR forks just sitting there and maybe they'll try to put them on so when I come back to town and pick up the moped, they will have the new forks on without my having to lift a finger?
Or, I could just contract with them to install the forks instead. Probably that would make more sense. Seriously, though, I don't know but if it's a bit too much for me to do on the sidewalk. A headlight is one thing. Rear dampers is another thing. But, a front fork assembly with the triple trees and cables, with the handlebars and the wheel with the brake hub and the whole shebang? If I had a garage it would be different. Sheesh.
We'll see how it goes. If anything, it will give me something to look forward to, for when I come back to town in October. At least, now, I know which forks I want.
