Tanaka traditional fenders for 27" commuter

I am thinking of getting a pair of Tanaka (Honjo type) fenders, but it is only advertised as a 700, I am wondering if they will fit on 27"?

Anyone tried them on 27" with 1 1/4 tires?


fenders I am interested in:

it's only a difference in circumference of a few mm; my rough maths tells me that a standard 27X 1 1/4 tire should have the same circumference as say a 700X35, which is well within the range covered by that fender.
