Manton & Smith (MS) Fenders

I devoted today to refurbishing the MS fenders. They really didn't need much done to them.

I did some minor dent removal, removed the braces, polished, and touched up.

The braces were held on by some old screws, which I believe the shop that repainted the bike used. They were uniform, decent quality screws but all had been cut by hand once installed. I removed them and will replace them with rivnuts for a smooth look.

The previous owner, "Fred" etched his name inside the fenders.

Touch up went well. I used an automotive grade touch up paint for the red. The front fender received both exterior and fender well touch up.

I only got the fender well of the rear done because it needed a little more patching.
