New rear mudguard

Postby ianstephens » Mon Dec 04, 2017 4:01 pm

Hello

Over the winter I’ve decided to smarten up some of the paint work on my 1935 250cc LH Redhunter.

It had originally been restored in the early 1990’s. I’d noticed a bit of fibreglass under the rear mudguard which was failing as some rust staining was showing through. I thought it best to clean it all off and start again but sadly after a trip to the sand blasters there’s not much metal left to repair! It seems all of the rust hadn’t been properly treated before it had been fiberglassed over and so the mudguard has corroded from within.

I’m wondering if anyone knows where I might be able to find a suitable replacement, either new or secondhand. Does anyone know if this type of mudguard was fitted to any other models?

Many thanks for all of your help

Ian

certainly looks similar to the one fitted to the W/ng, I could do with the lower section should you wish to dispose of it! mind you an original would be like hens teeth I would have thought but I understand there are repro's from India, kind regards

I believe your 35 had the same frame and guards as other models. The later 250 's had a different frame more lighter weight. Your guard looks the same as my 1948 rigid nh. I had the same problem as you after blasting it had more holes than a spring vest! And what was left was so thin you could almost see though it. I had a new one from India, it fitted great and was made from a good thickness metal.

Thanks for the advice guys, I hadn’t thought of either of those two options. I’ll give them both a try.

Cheers

Ian
