New Additions to the Americano

I came across some really nice Stainless Steel fenders for the Americano at Wallingford Bicycles.
Mr. Bill Laine, the properiter of Wallingford Bicycles gave me some really useful tips about the installation. While the installation was not a snap, it was not unreasonable.

See how pretty the Americano is with the Gilles Berthoud fenders?
To dampen any possible vibration, I made some leather washers using some leftover Brooks Bar Tape and a specialty die.
Next project is adding a nice brass bell. Will write about this soon!
