In Feb of 2015, Laurent Dubois said he wanted the fiberglass fenders off of Zippy for a nostalgia project he was working on. Paying the cost for shipping(which was catastrophically expensive), I basically gave them to him with the best of luck on his project.
Today in my Facebook feed, I saw Zippy's fenders again:
In the time it took me to get the pan temporarily fastened together, he build this(FB link, may need account).
I'm not on FB but judging by the pic above it's a nice built.
However I'm not so much into fiber glass parts and the shag pile (flokati rug?) sun visors are weird aren't they? :shock:

I'm sure Zippy will be of a different stamp once back on the road. ;)
And his former vintage flared fenders served for a good cause at last.

He had a very specific vision for his project, I remember. He was over the moon at having found the fenders and was willing to pay whatever it cost to ship overseas. I'm really glad he got some use out of them.

Here's one Zippy didn't donate to:

There was no context on the FB post and I couldn't find anything on the web via image search or looking at the tag.
