Default Re: jim in chicago first build schwinn drifter

I have a love hate relationship with my fenders. They rattle , break and rub, however vital they are. Cant ride anywere in the spring without a stripe up your back. My fix is real simple ( any hardware store ) , messure the dia. Of front rod on springer and spred between rods and let me know dim. If my parts fit ill send you kit , if not easy to rig your own. Once rods are setup you just run a little conecting bar under brake back to other fender half. I also reused my struts (wire) , you may need to make new ones ?
I'm sure you need to bob the rear one to cut vibe , and locktite the fasteners all around.
we few, we happy few, we band of brothers.
for he that shares the road with me shall be my brother. be he nare so vile this ride shall gentile his condition . and pedestrians now afoot will hold there manhood cheap when passed by a motor bike geek
