it looks familiar but im not used to seeing it clean........
What's the latest?
Is there a serial number on the frame? I'm wondering how old it is, and I've never seen that style folder.
I've made a couple of sets of Kelly-style bars, so maybe you could do something similar?
folders are so cool!!
The serial number is K100357. My research shows it is a 1946, but the headbadge hole pattern indicate that it is older. Possibly from two different bicycles.
Nice job on the handlebars. I may have to see what I can do about making some.
Progress is still slow. Hope to post some photos up soon.
Here are some fenders I picked up on eBay. They need to be cleaned a little. I think they'll make a cool addition to the bike.
Anyone have ideas, suggestions or foolproof plans to attach a fender to these forks? There isn't a way to fasten it.
I ran into the same problem. I used a 1" star nut from a threadless headset and inserted it in the bottom of the steer tube opening (instead of the top like you normally would for use with the the headset). Worked like a charm.

I'll have to check into that. Thanks for the tip
Yeah, failing that, you might look into using an expanding bar-end plug with the screw down the center, or if you're more automotively-inclined, an expanding freeze plug.
After stripping the old paint off the fenders I decided to blue them like I'm doing with the frame. I think they turned out pretty cool.
Hard to believe that those are the same fenders!
Really nice finish!
How much for a set of those bars?

If you're asking me, I think I charged $150 shipped. I couldn't in good conscience charge more than that, as they're functional, but not perfect reproductions, or anything.
Great solution! Another option would be to weld a nut that is close to the I.D. of the steer tube on the inside to bolt the fender to....
