Scrambers - To fender or not to fender

What's everyone's thought on removing the front fender for aesthetics? Good look or a little too hipster. Any extra risk to the bike? Thanks!

May the force be with you.

You would need a fork brace for your front forks, and yes a lil to "hipster" I've done it on a few cafe's builds years ago. Imo it's not a good look for the Bonnies

I didn't think about the fork brace, thanks. Appreciate your opinion and god knows I don't want to start drinking PBR...

Doesn’t the Scram fender just unscrew from the stock brace like the Thrux?

Ruining a perfectly good Bonnie since 2004.

Running Triumphs front fenderless since 1963, so you can imagine where I stand on the question.

Thank's for the feedback. I'm pick up the scrambler today and may have to try with & without.

May the force be with you.

Thought about going fenderless when I started working on mine, then stumbled upon this one and went for it. Very happy with the way it turned out ...

That looks great. Would you happen to have a link to the fender?
