Let's look at logic here. HD comes out with a 1948 model 125 to appeal to the masses after WWII. It's a compromise based on surrendered patents from Germany. The "Accessory People" don't even get involved until the second year of production but list their 'accessories' as -47 parts. Did 'they' think mudflap in 1947?

My gut instinct would be to think that it was not as important to have a mud flap to the rear as on the front because one might want to keep the slop off of the front of the motor and exhaust pipe. As far as a hole that could be used for hanging for painting, that might just be the hole on the front of the rear fender that is utilized for mounting to frame.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA !!!! Why doesn't the rear fender have one then?

The hole was for hanging while painting. The mudflap came later.

Hi all,

Just a simple question. Is the hole that is in the rear of the front fender suppose to be there?

Thanks
