Mudguard identification
« on: 07.03. 2021 11:49 »
Hello,

I've been clearing my fathers attic to be able to put the spares not needed on ebay to fund my A10 restoration.

I've believe the first picture could be 2 mudguards for a A7, but not sure exactly what they are off or the model or year.
I'm clueless what any of the 3 mudguards are for on the other picture!

Please could anyone donate their wisdom on how to find out or let me know what they are for?

Many thanks

The red one including the short hinged section in the first picture appears to be like the rear guard on my Plunger A10. Mine has a ridge down the centre.

Update: I think I can see a hinged section on the other guard.

 Two tone colour scheme is more likely to be from a Triumph.

 Red painted guard looks BSA S/A type, rust mark where seat support bracket fits. This guard looks as if it has been shortened just below the rear stay fixing. Other similar guard can be identified by front mounting set up and the rolled edge type towards the rear.

 More detailed pictures are needed to aid identification with true certainty.

Hello Guys,

Many thanks for trying to help! The Red one does have A7 in marker pen on it.
They are all going on ebay with a low start price. It would be good to list them properly though, so everyone gets a chance to find some thing they want at a low price.

I've all sorts of bits I'm putting on ebay and its a challenge trying to identify some of the parts.  Some have been in the loft for 40 years!

Thanks for everyone's help.
I've listed the red and gold one along with some of the other bits I know what they are off.

Late to the party again, but the front fender with the wire mounts appears to be an early Oil-in-Frame front fender for Triumph or BSA.

Appears to be for oil in frame models.  Same type as BSA

Thank you!
I think you are right now I google oil in frame BSA. I will have a go at listing it on ebay as I've a few bits still to list. I googled the part number on the rear lamp fitted to the other black mudguard and it was made for a PUCH! I still cant find a bike that fits the mudguard and rear light as its too wide for a moped! Its like a treasure hunt or I need to get out more!!
