Bluemels Airweight

Scored these fenders off a wreck of a yard sale find. I'm on the fence about using them, and I'm curious about what they're worth. What do you guys think?

Nothing? Are these hard to come by? Maybe I'll just wait until the right bike comes along

I have a couple of sets: one came stock on my '49 Raleigh Clubman, the other in a trade (and those were from the 1970s, I believe). I have no idea of value, but they are relatively rare and nice fenders.

I just scored a set on eBay for $50 buy it now without any mounting hardware. Maybe I paid a little more than I should have but they were nos in original packaging and I think they're cool looking. Considering what the plastic ones go for it should br considered a decent deal I think.

Cool! I traded my set to RobE30 without the mounting hardware for the rear, maybe you could talk to him about mounting solutions. I think he was going to try to make some stays himself.

I had seen the stays for sale alone on ebay, that was my plan. But I'll check with Rob for any other ideas too.

I have a set on my VSX, they take a ludicrous shine. Standard fender stays and daruma bolts fit just fine.
