working on a few '36 Roadmasters now and picked up a set of I believe '37 girls fenders, the front one has an extra depression in front of the headlight mount, its got a few small holes in the depression but it does not look like anything has been there lately if ever, I have searched high and low for pics of another similar fender and have not found any, hoping to find out what goes there and any pics of another one like this:

Good Call!
I now have found another photo of another '37 Roadmaster with the "Firestone Exclusive" initial holder in place in its depression, there was a debate here in 2008 as to whether Roadmaster made bikes for Firestone in 1937 or not, or if CWC simply had their own initial holder, unfortunately the bike had no headbadge but it was 100% Roadmaster

I was wondering the same..but that sure looks like a CWC fork.

I have never seen one of those fenders...... That’s interesting.
