Anyone know of someone with an original Model A spare tire ring or a guy that's doing repops?

You know the ones I'm talking about...

I had a line on a couple that turned out to be cut down too short for the bike I'm building and another that was split and widened... so the hunt is still on.

I don't think that's Model A. Looks to be mid '30s Ford, like '35-'36.

Bob,

You could be correct. I think I've always used "Model A" as generic term to describe these fenders. Perhaps that's why people have always been looking at me so funny. :rolleyes:
