Those dumpster fenders came out pretty nice.
looks good to me too
Nice! A Fresh Looking Color Scheme. I Likes It . Thanks For The Pics. Ron .
How did you get all those dents out of those fenders?
The auto body classes I took back in high school finally paid off. lol
Got most of them out with a light tap with a ball peen hammer then smoothed them out with body filler.
If it weren't for how tough these fenders are if I was going to do it over I think I'd just buy new. I have probably 12 hours of work into them.
Wow,That is alot of time and work....I bought some heavyduty chrome balloon fenders from my local bicyle shop for 35.00,they have served me well....I wish I had the drive you do to put that much time and effort into my ride....
those look much better than the wimpy fenders that come on the cranebrook. nice job.
Yeah 4 sure
Purty work Kev!
I also rework old Schwinn fenders. I deal with dents with two rubber mallets. One I shaped so that it fits the curve of the inside of the fender (shaped it with a disc sanding attachment on the drill)... hold it in place and smack it a good one with the other rubber mallet. They aren't aren't perfect to be sure, but look lots better than before. Being chrome, there's no hiding imperfections with body filler. I've tried using a ball-peen hammer and find that the rubber mallet works better.My bikes are old and so are the fenders... still, cleaned up they look good. They are what they are, sharp, classy old bikes. Some scratches, some faded or chipped paint, a couple dimples in the fenders are OK and help make it clear that the bike is old and not a reproduction. Besides, I'm cheap and don't like to throw things away if there's still life in them. I think your fenders look great, Kevlar.
