    Thank you for posting the pictures of the Falcon and Kingfishers. Started the restoration of my Kingfisher yesterday so the pictures help more than you know, such as what a rear brake arm looks like! Three Capers and I don't have a good one. The picture of the fender was most interesting. If it's an original, and not a reproduction, I am a bit surprised. The "chatter" marks on the bead shows it was made useing a Vibra-Shear or Pull-Max or simular machine. Ben Hunt didn't have such a machine so I guessing he ether had them farmed out to someone that had a machine or the fender is a repodution. Ben had some very large presses and hydraulic equipment so I was expecting to see a pressed bead. Can you shed some light on this?
