    Just finished up this beautiful Golden Flyer. I re-did all of the chrome and went through all of it. I have to give a lot of credit to my buddy Gary, he did an outstanding job recreating the decals. I also have to thank Dan @bicyclebones, for getting me the beautiful NOS Messinger seat. This bike has been on the Cabe a few times, I bought it from Greg @the2finger, who bought it from Al @Evans200.

    The fenders are just chromed, I used a tint when I took the photos and that's probably what your seeing... I got the bike with NOS Goodyear Wingfoot tires 26 X 1.75 that are factory "seconds" (Goodyear name does not appear on them). Best of luck to you with yours!
