    I need a 20" front fender for a project. Could possibly cut down a rear if that is all you have. It needs to be the heavier gauge like used in the 30's-40's. With or without braces is fine. It will get painted, so paint doesn't matter. Rust is fine, but needs to be fairly straight. Can buy or have stuff to trade.

    I can't really tell what kind of profile that has. Is it round or are the sides kind of flat? If that makes sense...

    Perhaps you could post a pic of what you are trying to match?
    Pics always help any ad.

    ozzy, as noted, pic of what you need to match would help , I htink I have a used set of early 20" fenders, or I have a couple sets of black primered ones NOS Wald. would have to dig em out and snap a pic if those might work, they're buried in the shop corner.

    I'll try to get a pic up tomorrow. They are round, not peaked, and heavier gauge than most fenders. Probably almost twice as thick. I could use rounded or peaked though. The rear needs replaced but I have rounded or peaked that will match. It is a Roadmaster cycle truck, so it is 26" rear and 20" front.

    I have to repaint, so I will likely hold out for a cheap orphan. It sounds like the set you have deserves to stay original. Thanks, though

    I found this one. Its a little rough. Off 1950's Huffy 20" convertible bike that had hard tires. Round profile.
    Yours for cost of shipping if you can use it.
