I was hoping that the brain trust and history buffs might be able to help me with a mystery. I have a 1951 BSA B34 Competition. The bike has street type fenders on it as opposed to the sport type fenders. I was told that the fenders are not correct and most of the books seem to suggest that they are not correct, BUT, I have a picture of the bike with the proud new owner from a few days after the bike was delivered and it has the street fenders on it. Can anyone help? Am I missing something? In case it matters, it is a plunger frame.

Max: It depends on what you really have for fenders. Here is a photo of a rigid B34 from around that era. How do your fenders compare with these?

Without frequent roadside repairs there is no fun in riding!

Thanks for the reply.

The rear fender is the hinged type with a raised rib down the center, has a flair away from the tire at the back and the edge of the fender seems to wrap down more at the outer edges. The front fender has the same ridge down the center and is flared at the front.

I can't seem to upload a picture - will try again later.

The ribbed fender would most likely have come from a plunger frame.
The rigids were usually plain and of course the swing arms did not need the detatchable rear end.

Did the plunger frames only come with the ribbed/hinged fenders?
