    I am looking to get some “sportier” fenders for my R51/3. It currently has heavy deep valance steel fenders.
    There is a bike recycler near me and I was wondering if anyone could point me to a model/year bike I can get some 18” aluminum fenders with less valance.
    Thanks

    Mostly brit bikes had the alloy fenders. You may have better luck with walridge.com or clubmanracing.com

    I had been to clubmanracing.com but could not find where to find the fenders.
    I will look at walridge.com

    There's a lot of chopper/bobber vendors that offer aluminum fenders for custom jobs. Don't know if that's what you are looking for, but J & P Cycles have them in different radiuses, and other vendors do too. these are modeled on the British style. J & P has an online catalog.
