My 65 D7 Trail Bronc has the usual clipped rear fender, right at the riveted fender stay band.  I found a that a 71 Triumph 250 front fender is the same "D" profile, and ~ 4 " wide.   I have one in hand, ready to donate to the cause!  Before I attempt the surgery, I need some info:

1)  what is the measurement from the fender "tip" to the center of the riveted fender stay band?

2)  can someone post a picture of the end of the fender?  is it a rolled edge or a straight cut?

3)  For 65, Sapphire blue is the same as the bronc  "Nutley Blue" (for nutley NJ bikes.)  does someone have a standard US paint code that matches?

 

Thanks

Hi Shopguy, 

 

The distance from the bottom of the stay support strap to the bottom tip of the fender is 9 inches.   

The fender also has four holes pre-drilled to accept a rear light fitting. 

I took the measurements from a genuine original TB rear fender.

I will try to get a photograph but is not always easy at this time of year.
