Greetings frame builders, I usually hand out in touring and folding bikes, so first post over here for me.
I'm in the process of purchasing a new bike, it is a folding Bike Friday New World Tourist. I have always wanted some Honjo Hand Hammered Fenders, http://www.jitensha.com/eng/fndrs_e.html. However I have pretty much moved to the realm of 20" wheels and they do not make fenders in this size.
The only option I found, which are beautiful, are wood fenders, http://www.woodysfenders.com/store/. However a local rider has the flat fenders, which I do not like and the compound curve ones are $$ expensive. I love those compound fenders but $180+ is outa my range atm with the new bike purchase.
So does anyone have a link to anything nice or to directions on doing their own? I have a local metal artist that will allow me to borrow space, tools and advice, but he is very busy so I'm trying to limit it to space and tools.
On a side note, anyone here ever build a folder?
