Too many people simply don't want to pay 50% of new for near new but used parts. They just are hoping for garage sale prices. Used parts are no risk at all IF they come from an Airhead knowledgable source such as you. Frankly, I wouldn't waste my time trying to detail an estimate. I would just quote best guess flat fee delivered which might take all of a minute or two to verify the part available and shoot off the offer. If no reply, few minutes wasted on another idiot.

Did I mention it's new? $400 plus actual shipping cost from Nor Cal.

WTB: R60/5 Front Fender and Brace

Hey guys,
Just bought my first airhead and first true restoration job, 1971 R60/5 in silver. Boy do I have a lot to learn.

I'm going to need a bunch of odds and ends, but going to start with the front fender.

So, looking for a front fender and fork brace. It would be great if it were sliver with the blue pin stripe, but not necessary. Patina is fine, but must be structurally solid.

PM me if you got something.

Thanks!

Welcome Jam,

Start a regular thread so we don't take up a lot of Flea Market space.

/5 fenders look exactly like /6 fenders. I am told they are not but I can't see any difference myself. Maybe they are, maybe they aren't. The fender brace of course is a /5 item.

/5 fenders mount differently from /6 I think the lower mount is the same or similar, but the fork brace is different, so the mounting holes are in different places. I've got a brace and a black /5 fender I'd send you for $40 plus shipping. The catch is that the fender has an easily repaired crack at the top mounting point. I can e-mail you some pics if you're interested.

They are both the same fender.

I may possibly have a front fender and brace. I can look this weekend.
