Hey Alex,
Slightly bent is correct, Travis "The Harley Hummer Nut"

The rear vertical fender brace that I have both sides flare
out a little. It looks like they are like that to give the
tire a little more room. My question is are they supposed to
be a little bent, or are they supposed to be strait?
