45 Front Fender Question ?

Got a Repop 45 Front fender on my WL and fitted up real nice, Running a 16in front wheel & Avon tyre ,
The problem is I got a huge gap Between the top of the tyre and the fender, When you look at it side on I have about 1 1/2 inches of airspace, Most stockers I have seen ,look like the front fender sides cover the side of the tyre when looking from the side of the bike"

Stock WL Front end ,springs & Rockers

Maybe its me? anyone else had this problem with repop Front fenders

Thanks Gruntis

Dang" Thats Proberly it""

WLA Front forks could be,this ol 40 WL came to me as a Basket Case with this front end.

Check in the Bruce Bible that this frame was a 40 along with its trans & Engine but never checked the Front end? I thought a11 45s solos were the same" But Me being a Rookie Dont know Shit from Clay? You guy,s may be right about WLA Front forks.

Anybody know the length so I can go Check

Thanks Gruntis

Yep You were right about the fork lenghts its the same" as your sizes,

I also went a checked a 51 WL Solo a buddy of mines gots and its also the same,

Should be riding it this weekend, First time this Summer. It started first kick after my rebuild?? Go Figure?

Front brake cable feels a little mushy, Might have to fatten up the cable

Went to a swap last weekend ,saw a 35 VL Barn fresh Runner, Guy wanted $6000 Aust for it,

Maybe If I had some spare cash,
