Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Good Places for Parts?

Hey all, I'm new here and doing a full restoration on a mid-1950's single speed cruiser, brand unknown.

The rear fender is in pretty sad shape, and I'd like to replace it with as close a match as possible. can anybody recommend a good website for parts?

At the request of the owner (not me) I have located an old Bendix 2 speed kickback hub, and am having 2 new alloy wheels built for the bike. It should be pretty outstanding when I'm done with it... not that I'm blowing my own horn or anything.

Your lbs should have a catalog full of Wald fenders for you to look at. They make some pretty retro beach cruiser looking fender sets that your lbs could order for you.

Thanks guys. New at this, I've since realized that I should've posted this over in the "Classics and Antiques" section.
