New Fenders

Bought new hammered aluminum fenders for the touring bike, I think they dress it up nicely don't you?

Can't see. That looks like a link to a file on your computer, and not an upload.

trying it through a URL from FLCKR

https://www.flickr.com/photos/114332...posted-public/

seems to work...but cumbersome to do.

Yeah, have to see if there is anyway to improve that, but aftermarket merchandise does not always fit the way you think it will.

Sweet! My kind of fender...low-down in the front. A small "leather" flap at the back of each fender would tie into the seat and hand grips. I installed plastic fenders on two of my bikes, but I got hammered afterward, does that count?

Yes, that's part of the fun of fenders... and these are trickier than most. Took me a long time to get them adjusted just right.
