Nice stuff but pricey not to mention shipping will be rude.

Restorers will love them, no matter what they cost. Regular joes like us, will just take the rusty stuff out there, and clean/pound dents/repair holes/rearc and repaint, to keep from using new stuff that cost more than most of our bikes. Some will try to buy them, but in the end, a fender is a fender. A 50 dollar fender from the swaps, will keep mud/rain off you, as good as a 500 dollar fender. But, they are nice, and look well done. Just to pricy for me, as I like the OEM stuff anyway.

Great to see the tooling. For a serious restorer of a brand without the enormous accumulation of stock Harley parts it's great to be able to get a correct fender.

The prices are very reasonable in (inflation corrected) dollars and most motorcycles only have two fenders.

Many old folks think a 1970 dollar is the same as a 2017 dollar.

I don't know. In 1970 $1000 bought you a '32 Ford Deuce or a ''51 Merc. or 2 Knuckles, or a Mercedes 300SL.
Most working class people had $1000 to spare. Today working class people live without that $1000 cushion and that 300SL is 2 million dollars...

Spot on. In '72 I sold a 1947 EL with a cracked head for $500 and thought I did well on the deal.

I like the quality & I guess they fill a hole in the market but I personally wouldn't pay more than $100 for a Fender,...
however, have you seen what the fashion victims pay for anything WCC,... if jessy Jane even breathed on it they will pay thousands !!.......... ''A Fool & His Money'' springs to mind.................
