Rear fenders

Post by David R. » August 23rd, 2019, 8:56 am

Could A rear fenders be adapted for single wheel AA? On the drawings I see they look like they scale out close to same size

You don't indicate what AA you are referring to? A chassis rear fenders are smaller. First attachment is an AA rear fender for the 1927 - June 1930 AA's. Metal workers can make just about anything. Second attached is an example of a modified fender (not something I would consider putting on my AA).

Thanks Neil, I agree second version not acceptable. :roll: Was wondering how much difference in dimensions between A ana AA rears to see if it would be possible to modify A rear fenders to work for AA. The dimensions will help me.

Keep in mind that the width is different as well. The A fenders are wider than the AA.

AA fenders are available...expensive but they are out there. The passenger sides are the hardest to find.

That’s why I was curious about modifying A fenders.
