    Hello All,

    After numerous attempts to identify (on my own) the maker of these newly acquired fenders, i am attaching photos in hopes someone will recognize them and know a little bit about them? Or, perhaps point me in the direction of one who does???

    They look old, possibly pre-world war ii.....however, i am not an expert.....i was able to find a pair very similar, made by CWC, however the shape of theirs was not near as pointed at the ends as mine are.....

    Thank you so much for any help you might provide.....
    .Lonnie

    I'm with everyone else, either Colson or Cleveland Welding and have been modified.

    By the way, they are not exactly ancient fenders either. Most definitely post 1933 so your post is technically in the wrong Forum category. Fenders are possibly late 1930's but most likely 1940's, maybe even early 1950's but I would guess 1940's is the safe bet.

    thanks to everyone for the input.....i plan to sell the pair at a garage sale on saturday, and want to set them at a reasonably low and fair price ...... everyone's input as to their making has helped tremendously and has also confirmed my thoughts as well (as far as the modifications go) ...... i will now do a bit more research into an asking price - thanks again everyone. lonnie
