It takes some working of the inner fenders but it is possible, and it's 
what all of the US racers use AFAIK. I just got done making some room to 
fit them to a 62 Mark II square arch. Hopefully Ron, WST, or one of the 
other vintage racers will chime in with some specifics on modifying the 
Bugeye fenders.
