Honjo mudguards, part 1

An unscheduled day off work allowed the time to fit some Honjo hammered aluminium mudguards to Donna's Bob Jackson fixie.
Even with frequent reference to instructions in Bicycle Quarterly and on the Jitensha Studio website the job took a couple of hours, and I'm not done yet.
Both the fork crown eyebolt and the bracket of the rear sliding bridge are too short and the guards sit a little high for my taste, so some custom widgets will be needed before I can call this job finished.

Nice, I just got a rather ratty Bob Jackson tourer which is next on the restore list. Did you buy the fenders from the US?

Yep, got them from Velo-Orange.
