The fender looks perfect for it. If I were ever lucky enough to build another Brit bike, it would have one of the front fender dorsals that they used to put license on.

They were compulsory here in the early days, and it took many years of complaints to get the regulation changed.

The vibration of the number plate and brackets combined with holes drilled to mount same were very efficient at cracking the front guard.
