Thank you Alan
There are resources that I often forget about. Still, no substitute for first hand accounts from real Arielists.
You can see from the posted pics that it is a rigid VB with a QD wheel and no lift handle because it has a rear carrier that can be grabbed to lift. Interesting combination. Anyone here that owns it?
I am guessing that this mudguard stay set up can be successfully used with a non QD wheel. Looks to be enough clearance once the guard is raised.
I was hoping to install beaded aluminum mudguards to cut weight as I am creating an alloy engine VH, rigid framed, lightweight special. Want the guards to be beaded for age related cred as the frame, BA and engine cases are all 46. Been chasing beaded alloy guards for many years but haven't given up yet. Just bought a set of Indian rigid/girder guards and have asked the manufacturer if he is able to provide similar, in aluminum but with no hinged rear section. So far no response.
This is not my biggest problem. The biggest is too many projects and not enough dosh to go full blast on all of them. Just keep picking away over the years. No dicipline
