I have a friend here in the states looking to have the rear fender reproduced. He sent an original well used item for the dimensions. The company is in Western Australia. I had an NOS fender and all the brackets, it was still a bear to install. You may already know all the braces on the front fender is the same as the 1954 Road Rocket along with the fender itself.

Well this took a fair bit longer than I thought it would. . I finally have the rear guard and all the stays/brackets, also the tool box brackets made to suit the repo rear guard, I still need to make one more stay for the front guard, but that should be a cake walk after the rear one.
A big thank you to Mikes classics in QLD for persisting with my requests and supplying some pressings and the cast mounting so I could make these stays to how I need them.
The repo guards slightly differ to originals and need to be set up from scratch, and in the words of Lloyd ”are a Bear”
The next step will be to set the bike up for a set of pipes and mufflers to be fabricated, from my man who done a fantastic job on the Daytona.
Happy Easter all, oh nearly forgot 1 year to go on this build.
Tomorrow I’m of to the All British Rally with my 62RGS & 57 Gold Flash for 5 fun filled days. CHEERS

Looks like you are coming along nicely. The mudguard may be repo but it looks great. We are awaiting for the next pics! Lloyd

Dutch, the paint is just etch primer so it won’t rust for the moment.
