I recently stumbled across this. Yes, you can make a new 1927 rear fender from scratch!
Umm ... if you mean 'me' with a 3 lb maul and a pair of tin snips .. umm .. probably not. :-)
Informative link ... thanks for posting!
Think I'll run out to the shop and whip out a couple before dinner.
Making one is easy. Making two that match is much harder. Now you see why they're $350+ each. He's set up with tooling and jigs to make them so that helps. Whipping out a couple before dinner could help you loose weight.
Ha i wish.
That is phenomenal. Practical? No. But the satisfaction of making presentable parts is immeasurable. I'm glad we can share this kind of craftsmanship on the internet for future generations to enjoy.
