    Very nice! It seems everyone has those cheapie target scwinn generator lights. I modified mine to run off a battery and be controlled by a switch on my handlebars.

    the classic look, and nicely done 8)

    the round-wire fender braces are the way to go...good move, or did the fenders come with the bicycle?

    I see you had to cut a section of fender out for clearance. I had to do the same. Is that also the reason your chain tension roller is so high? Over all looks great!

    Same bike I ride, Pacific Shorewood. Mine is an older model that came with black anodized rims, spokes, and hubs. Basically the same bike as the Kulana Moon Dog but different color.

    I hope you reinforced the front fender. If not, it could break while you're at speed and cause an accident. I'm running mine without fenders.

    Hey Moth,
    Mine is the Moon dog. Are you saying that they come loose or completely break off?
    doc :???:

    If it (fender) comes loose where it attaches to the top of the fork, it'll follow your tire...till it hits the road, then becomes a brake..... a brake you don't want.

    Yes, the fenders are made from very thin steel which cracks easily, especially the top support on the front fender. When the fender ends up between your tire and the road it will cause a wreck. If you must have fenders, add supports and inspect them every time you ride. Or get some soft plastic fenders that flex instead of break.

    ot, a bit...ok, the fenders are stock. i was wondering.

    so it's the fender itself breaking & not the braces?

    thanks, i'll take the rest of this elsewhere 8)
