Front SS mudguard..

Post by ghislain » Thu Feb 19, 2015 6:50 pm

Does any one use a US Burton Bits guard on his bike ?
I know they are made for 19' rims but I would like to know if they look good with the std SS front wheel.
My B50 (1 1/2 series) is fitted with a long chromed one which is ugly, even if I believe it to be original ...
Thanks for answers !

I got a small batch of proper US length mudguards made up by Auto-Cycle (using the same tooling the originals were made with), correct for the 18" wheel. I've different variations of wire stay (which I need to get round to TIGing on). PM me if you're interested

Hi ghislain,
The attached photo (dated 09/09/2014) shows an A65 type 19in pattern front mudguard fitted to an 18in front wheel. I disliked it enough to remount it on homemade brackets.(photo dated 12/01/2015). While the radius is not perfect I think it looks much better.
The mudguard came with the B25SS I used as a basis for the Tribsa, so I do not know if the Burton part would be exactly the same.
Cheers
Bill
