Are the wheels and fenders original to the bike?
In my opinion they are not, but I need your professional opinion too.
Thanks

I'm no SK expert but like the others said I think the rims should be 24" triple steps and fenders (and of course stem/bars) are wrong. V/r Shawn

Wheels are probably correct, contrary to what people think not all Silver King came with triple step wheels. I have owned at least a half a dozen bikes with those wheels. Three of which were 100 percent original. Mostly you’ll find them on the girls bikes but I have two examples on boys bikes one is a totally original Wingbar.
Also they can have a variety of different hubs even the triple step wheels. Here are some examples.

I bought the bike.
The wheels are 24" but because of the gap, I believe the bike is a 26" size.
It looks that tbe fenders are original to the bike, but repaint.

I would say fenders are not OG ... braces look to long. I would say that they would be not raingutter
I believe fenders should be similiar to as pictured ... i will buy bike if for sale tho

Cruisin' on my Bluebird
This 37 had drop center. The rear fender had been painted over with aluminum color paint, foolishly.

Lovely bike Marius. The SK with 24” wheels handles fenders nicely. I opted to squeeze 26” wide rims and tires and forego the fenders.

Here’s the front with no truss rods. The tire interferes with truss bracket.

Rear wheel needs the axle most of the way back.

I really wanted the truss, so I welded the inner parts of the fork dropouts to lower the front axle.

Good luck with your project. You’re gonna love this bike.
