After removing the the front axle and probably the wheel, the parts would be secured from the backside (inside) of the existing mounts.

I am sure this would be a low volume part, but thought I would ask how much interest there is.
Raising the fender up is certainly needed for even casual dirt riding. I can hear the rocks dragging along the inside of the fender, sometimes even on the street.
I think a half inch would be just about right.
Removing the front wheel to install the kit would not deter me.
Mark me interested / likely.
