Default Almost there

Well the Cranbrook is almost done, all that's left is to get a matching wheel and tire for the front.

Over the winter I installed my MM sprocket adapter w/36T sprocket, replaced the old Schwinn fenders with a set of Wald fenders (rear had cracked in two and the front was starting to show some cracks along the edge), machine turned the engine covers and installed a springer front end.
Was really kind of disappointed in the Wald fenders though, they are not at all arched to match a 26" tire as you can see in the pictures. Guess I should have went with a set of 24" fenders, maybe they would have fit better.

I really like how she rides now and being able to cruise along at WOT doing 30+ is a real bonus. Before the tuned pipe and on the original 44T sprocket 20-27 was about all she could do but now I only drop down to 25 going up hill.

Also included a picture of my front fender mount that I'd described in another thread.
