ISO Chrome Front Fender for Roadmaster

I've found my childhood first bike! It's a 1968 AMF Roadmaster, but it's missing the front chrome fender (peaked). Anyone know where I can find one? I've already checked eBay, but none there.

I know it could take awhile to find one, but thought I'd ask up front.

I'm also looking for the same seat I had..it was white with gold trim.

Sure would appreciate any info!

Thanks so much!


Warmly,
Lori

Lori,

Welcome to C&V. Do you have a picture of your bike? Are the wheels 27"? I doubt that this Roadmaster is a '68, but you are more than welcome to the fenders and anything else you would like for me to pull off of it. I hauled it home from the dump last fall and I doubt I'll do a thing with it.



As you can see the fenders and most of the parts are quite rusty. I've not tried any steel or bronze wool or wood bleach on the fenders, but I could give it a little test and let you know the results. BTW, I believe I gave the saddle away sometime last year. PM me if you are interested.

Can't help you with peaked fenders, but Wald Manufacturing, Inc still makes chrome plated fenders for 26" lightweight, middleweight and balloon tire bikes.

Different widths, suited for tires measuring from 1-1/8" to 2-1/8". Several different models including some with flares bottom ends. Look up their website and you can download their entire wholesale catalogue of accessories - many of which most US bike manufacturers had used on their bikes originally. Some very cool stuff, often designs dating from decades ago, and still made with pride right in the USA.

Wow, thanks SO much for the offer of the parts, Bob! I found one on craigslist and emailed the guy, so I'm waiting to hear from him. I can't tell for sure from the photo he has on craigslist, but it sure looks like what I'm looking for. If not, I'll let you know and maybe I can use that front fender from your's.

I'll also check out Wald Mfg.

Thanks you guys!

Warmly,
Lori
