Hi, there is no bracket, and the mudguard bolts direct to the fork cross-member. Most forks have a lug incorporated into the cross member, with one part projecting forwards and another to the rear, so two bolts hold the mudguard in place. There needs to be a hole in the guard for the fork slider stem to stick through maybe a quarter of an inch. Occasionally the lug is missing, and it is easily replaced by a strip of steel bent into a ‘C’ shape to go over the cross member. Don’t put a spacer between the cross-member and the mudguard, or you will run out of clearance between the tyre and the mudguard on full bounce, especially if you have a 21″ front wheel.
