|Mercian Olympic wearing mod'd SKS Longboards.|
In a previous blog post, Click here for the link to post regarding these fenders. , I had described my modification and installation of SKS Longboards on my Green Mercian. I currently have that bike in a non-operational status, so I decided to install them on my other Mercian Olympic!
Among some other modifications, I had adapted the Longboards to a Daruma type of installations under the front fork crown. So, I had to install a Daruma on this bike to mount the front fender.That was about the biggest task of the whole install! All mounting points were identical on this Olympic to the 1983 version, so things were all pretty easy.
