Well the 48-55 book shows all 6 as 1/2" up to 55.
Now the 53-63 book shows both sizes starting in 55, which one is correct? Typical parts book issues that is why I am asking.

Look closer there Leroy. Do ya see where it lists (4) 3/4" long bolts and (2) 7/8" long bolts. The long bolts go thru the overlapped braces !!! Also if if simply look in Jerry's Poulman pics at the 1955 models pics, you can clearly see the overlapping braces on the front fenders

That shows when they went from screws to bolts on the braces,nothing about when the braces changed. 53-63 book shows a different pic but nothing said about when the braces changed.

The change came on the 55 model. Look at the 48-55 parts manual.

Ok Hummerites look at your original bikes for me please. I know that up to 54 the front fender braces were butt welded together. What year did they start overlapping the front braces?

Thank you, Leroy Lange
