Agreed.
Buy Chezqui’s or go down the much more expensive route of Bike Brothers or Wunderkind.
Simon Parker from BIKERMART is super good to deal with as are US based A&JCycles, but as you’re in the UK they probably won’t be the most economical to use cause of customs, etc.

Steve please see pm. Here are a few photos of when I changed out for the Triumph short rear mudguard and side mount plate. I fitted Rizoma rear combined rear light/brake light/indicators as they flash orange and used the extension stems to keep (nearly) to the minimum distance apart required by the UK MOT. The triumph short rear mudguard wiring harness needs to be spliced to the Rizomas and the battery needs to be removed to get in to some of the connectors including the side mount light connector.

Welcome Steve, my folks live in Hartshill, and I was born in George Elliot hospital. Live in Devon now though.

For the back end, spend some time and visit the members garages for different versions of the back end, and search the threads with the search function, it is an area nearly all of us have done something with.
See photo for mine.

Where did you get that small reflector at the back of the mudguard? If there's one last thing I want to change on my Bobber, it's that muckle big original reflector.

Hey Steve, Welcome!

There is a multitude of options, and combinations for the back of these bikes. Ultimately it up to your own taste, and of course, whats legal in your area.

I started simply doing a google search for "bobber short fender" and went from there. For me I always came back to the triumph short fender option, as it was the simplest install, covered all the ridiculous legal hoops in Canada, and achieved the look I was after.

Happy modding! :D

Guffer, I had it in my box of bits in the garage. As I remember I got a pair of them from eBay for pennies when I was doing a Harley project a couple of years ago. Totally agree I wanted that huge OEM reflector gone!!
