Something like this:

Or like this, but less fender at the front of the center axis

I want a ground hugger front fender - less fender towards front of wheel and more towards the back to make the front look raked out. The front cut into a point as well would be cool >

To fit a 17" 120 front tire. I can give measurements of spacing between things if you like

I think having the tyre infront of me would be the go for either job.
