Default LePera solo seat (art.L855) on '79xlh ironed

hello everyone, I bought a LePera saddle for my ironhead, I tried to mount it on the frame and it fits well, but ... the fender does not have the fixing hole ...
is it possible?!
I hadn't noticed until I tried it.
have you had such experiences, how did you solve, did you make the hole?

I'll move this to the Ironhead section, where you're most likely to get the help you're looking for.

Yeah. Latest image upload piece should work. I usually remove the fender but it is not needed to be done. Just remove wheel . Tape up fender where you are going to drill the hole < so as not to chip paint > . Use the right drill bit for a snug fit. Have at it.

I usually either weld a nut using a torch and brass rod or pick up a rivet blind nut from the hardware store.
