Me, I'd put stock brakes back on it.

Looks great, Some 1" wider fenders would be perfect. To check out how it would look with wider fenders, get some long bolts to replace a few of the fender bolts and put 1" stacks of washers between the body and fenders.

What width do they make them in? Fiberglass is pretty easy to work with, so you could always split a set of stock fiberglass fenders to add a strip to them.

Ahhh, so there lies the desire to not use the widened fenders up front! CSP makes 4cm widened super front fenders, but shipping from Europe would be pricey.

This guy is widening steel fenders, but the same process could be done with fiberglass. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Co4RZUog6Xo

Just doing some here... It may not get you the width you need but have you thought of trying to roll the bead of some metal fenders out a bit? Might work, (1" might be too much for this though)

well did some more measurements last week based on suggestion from jon at topline.

we measured from the mounting surface of the disc to the spring. and then put the drum back on and measured again

these measurements seemed identical - so it doesnt look like the brakes are adding any significant spacing.

talked to wheel company and they offered to pay to ship front wheels back so they can inspect and ensure there wasnt an error in the build that could be affecting offset.

on a positive note - my gauges are in , and should have engine in the next few weeks -then hopefully the wheel issue will be solved.
