If you don't mind me asking - where on earth did it come from?
I actually like the fender design - it seems like it would be easier to shape the fender/strap and get it to sit comfortably. Its clearly the original design, you can tell from the tooling that it has not been altered - but I've never seen one like it before.
If I had to guess, I'd say it was probably made by a smaller saddlemaker who was experimenting.
