If Wally made a bicycle

My father in law restores vintage bicycles. He just finished this 1936 Silver King. He had a bike like this when he was a kid. Notice the rivets on the fenders.
The stainless steel fenders came from a girls version that had strings to protect the spokes from skirts.
He filled the holes with stainless rivets, adding them to the front fender.
I thought some fellow vintage airstream lovers would like to see this.
