not terrible fenderline for a first timer. I still need to trim the stays. I wanted the front stay to be at more of a downward angle, but oh well what can you do.

It took some time to do this, the fork crown and chainstay were both a bit too narrow for the 48mm VO fenders, so I crimped them. Also, the chainstay and seatstay bridges on this bike do not have mounting points, so I had to use P-clamps to mount the rear fender.

    I misread that as "not a terrible Federline for a first timer." Oy.

    i have a men's super course with a similar fender problem. i have 40mm fenders and have to crimp them at the chainstay. how did you manage to do this without mangling the fenders? any advice would be welcomed. do you have close-up pictures of your handywork? i also need to use p-clamps so i am curious about how you managed.

    I just used a pair of needle-nose pliers to crimp on either side of the fenders a bit where it contacts the fork crown and chainstays. The p-clamps, I just put some notes where I placed them. I drilled through the fender and attached the fender directly to the P-clamp with a bolt, leather washer, and nut.

    Hi there,

    I just found your picture and I was wondering what type of handlebars you have on your SC..I have the opportunity to purchase one but has drop handlebars which I'm not a fan of.

    TIA

    There were a few Super Course models - This is an earlier model, made in the 60s, and it has the original steel handlebars and stem. Closest I've seen online are the Velo-Orange "Milan" handlebars. You'll need to change the brake levers too at the very least if you convert from drops though.
