Title: Front mudguard no. Plates

Where could i get a pair of the number plates that mount onto the sides of the valanced front mudguards ? The boxy type guards as fitted to the flash.

I would think you'd have difficulty in finding the correct shape... I got some metal off of ebay and cut out my own, not hard to do. I then got some stick on letters to draw round, then painted an off white onto black, finishing with two coats of semi gloss varnish.

Does the radius of the tippers plates match the radius of the mudguard closely ? I might do what l.j. Suggests and make me own.

Looking at Tippers price lists... Two plates for £30 is not too bad a price, however it is a lot to lose if they are the wrong curved shape. Why not send them a template for them to work on, that's if they are prepared to work from such. If you would like a drawing of mine feel free to pm/email me and I'll post a drawing out for you.  *smile*
