    One thing I was never really happy about was the cycle fenders



    So I took a mould off a random tyre




    After creating 4 dummy tyre treads I attached them













    Fronts need finishing.
    The Matt black paint looks a bit shiny, I reckon it will look better when it acquires some dirt.
    I may live in East London, I may have a number plate that reads "Chopt", but I do NOT use 6" wheel spacers!

    as you say the 'matt' black certainly doesn't look it but that's easy to sort.
    anyway where did you get that idea from ian?
    need a job done on your project? i may be able to help.

    Yes Neil, you suggested long ago that I photo the tyre treads, get vinyl wrap made. But I was getting quoted £200 and I was too stingy, so came up with this plan instead.

    Credit where credit is due

    I have a vague recollection that MyGasser suggested the idea of taking a fibreglass mould off a tyre, I think I dismissed it at the time, but have ended up doing it. If this is true, sorry Neil for failing to acknowledge this.
