Default 2016 Sporty 48 Fender Brace

Hello everyone. I'm helping a buddy get his 2016 Sportster 48 ready to sale. He bought it used a couple years ago and the previous owner removed the front fender and bracket. Now, my buddy wants to bring it back to original form with a front fender installed before selling it (there's a potential buyer lined up for it who want's the front fender installed).

I've already got a new front fender for it... but I can't find the front fender brace/bracket for 49mm forks. I ordered a bracket online, but it was too small, for 39mm forks. So where can I get one of these brackets at besides Harley? Anyone have a pull off that they're willing to sell me? I didn't see any on the classifieds here... only one currently on eBay is bent... it doesn't have to be new. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance. 👍

That may be your best option.

Yeah, I'm not trying to spend as much as Harley is asking for a new fork brace ($147.95)... hoping to find a used pull off for cheaper. I see a bunch of Sportys around town without a front fender here in Vegas... I just assumed that it's a popular mod and there'd be more pull off braces available.
