Front and rear look like classic alloy fenders (mudguards to us over the pond!) with appropriate mounting brackets, must be some classic parts suppliers over there... often seen on old brit singles and twins to stop oil getting on the tyres.......

As mounted, it's potentially lethal.

It really needs to have stays from the lower end to the fork to stabilise it. Otherwise there's a risk it will vibrate enough for the leading edge to contact the tyre, followed by the stoppie to end all stoppies.


(Something I learned in my fashion conscious youth) :)

Edit: forgot to say it's a really neat bike, and looks like a real cafe racer.
