local shop has what looks to me to be a real nice NOS original ribbed front fender-- beaded on one end-- never mounted and maybe never painted-- has a normal rust patina-- wondering who on this forum wants to help me identify it? thinking Thunderbird 40's or 50's maybe? I can send pics to a email address or? thanks , Bob

If the 7/8" wide bead up the center of the fender flairs out at the bead edge at the front then it could be original. The repo ones go straight to the bead edge.

Ok thanks Jon and Boomer - next time I'm at Dan's shop I will get some pics and inspect the bead width and if it flairs. Hopefully this is a original but I see the repops have been manufactured for some time now.

You are welcome Bob and I look forward to either seeing the fender or hearing about what you find it out to be.

Boomer was only partially correct.
The original fenders were not symmetrical where the rib flared into the front edge.
If the fender is an original, the flare will be crooked to one side, the good repro's will be perfect.

Here's info on fender I am asking about-- the center bead is 5/8ths inches wide and does not have any "flair" at the front edge or the back edge---the fender is 44 &5/8th inches overall length and is 4 7/8th inches total width-- I have some pics but I don't have time to send now and the quality will probably be poor anyhow.
I will get back to this after my " Vikings Motorcycle Club National Grand Prix" race in Lk Havasu City Az this weekend. Incredible fast riders --racing last year was Jeremy Mc Grath and Josh Grant.

Seeing how it's not painted/bare steel and no flair to the bead I'd conclude that its an aftermarket fender. But then again I may only be partially correct.
