Ok.....I got a real nice STEEL front fender for my c50 due to the unfortunate mishap with the old PLASTIC P/O/S! I can't figure out for the life of me why the HE* they would make a front (or rear) fender for a motorcycle out of plastic! but that's another rant entirely.....I got this sweet fender and the dude had no idea what bike it was off of and I thought maybe someone could tell by looking at it....? Never mind the fluffy background! I took the pics in my studio (little spot on the garage work bench) that I use to photograph antique dolls that I professionally restore and sell.

Who wore this one?







Stella is about to wear this fender with a few minor alterations!

She is tired of being naked on the front wheel!

Don't know. I'm sure that fender mounting bracket can be identified at some point.

Is the hole spacing on the fender an EXACT match to your struts or will you have to modify ?

I had a metal front fender on my c50 and it came off a C109. I ask about the hole spacing because mine was an exact match and I doubt many others would be.

It was a really snug fit to get in position but once it was there just bolt her on and reinstall the wheel/tire. Perfect fit.

I have to elongate the holes in the mounting bracket by about 1/8th of a inch out on each one to make it work and I have 1/2" spacers to put in between the fender and fork mount and then it will be just fine.

Yeah....I have no clue what it is off of and neither did the dude that I bought it from. It is a very nice heavy steel fender kind of reminds me of a Harley fender but I really have no idea.

As much having a plastic fender makes the bike seem cheap, I was happy it wasn't steel when I slowly slid on gravel and the bike ended up on the front fender. I could see the fender all twisted and pressed against the front wheel while the bike was on the ground. When I put it back all that remained was a little scratch on the right side of the fender. Had that been a steel fender, I would've had to fix the whole **** thing.... so might look cheap, but it sure worked for me!!! :) Let's see a pic when you get that fender on it!

I hear ya Rob! I have a really cool Gangster front fender coming for her but I picked this steel one up for a song and I like the steel. I will have a back up if anything should happen to one of them so I have the best of both you might say! I will have it on tomorrow and shoot some pics. I like the way it looked when I did the mock up to figure out what to get to secure it so I think I am going to dig it!

After further close review it doesn't seem to have the same mounting bracket. In fact, the V Star doesn't have that extra little bracket extending away like this one. Still very likely Yamaha though.
