Default Re: Difference? Middleweight/balloon Schwinn

I measured around the chains stays and seat stays. The fenders on this bike set inside the seat stays at the fender bridge by 3/16th on one side and a heavy eighth on the other. I noticed the fenders for the balloon tire bikes have dimples at the fender bridge where the seat stays go through. Where the rear tire runs through the chain stays, there is a total of 1 9/16th around the tire. Plenty of room for the larger balloon tires.
Any comments would be appreciated.
