Finally riding a big boys bike
Looking to see what front fenders were used when a balloon bike was configured with a springer fork versus fork with truss rods versus standard flat fork. This is for a 61 Wasp application.

The front fender callout for the 61 Wasp was fender part number 5000. No other fender is mentioned but truss rods and springer forks were an option. In the 1962 parts and accessories catalog, the front fender is 5006 for 26” balloon fenders and no other type is listed.

I’m guessing there were different indentation configurations for the addition of springer forks and/or truss rods (at least one other front fender type that worked for both additional options, springer and/or truss rods).

Attached is a picture of a 1959 Wasp with Springer fork. Is this the correct fender type for late 50s early 60s balloon front fenders? The earlier balloon front fenders that had holes for front fender lights (unlike the Wasp) looked to had different fender indents depending on Springer fork or fork with truss rods. I’m thinking the configuration was simplified at some point with only one configuration for front balloon fenders or at least only one configuration for the Wasp. For the 61 Wasp, this is getting at any differences in the size of the front fender indents when equipped with a Springer fork versus fork with truss rods.
