New BSA Front & Rear Chrome Fenders
As the years pass by “ordinary” parts that where known to be readily available will start to become scarce and hard to find
Like most vintage BSA motorcycles, gas tanks, fenders, and side covers will get harder and harder to find in good usable shape at an affordable cost
Over the past 40+ years motorcycles get neglected and also loved by different owners while some endure accidents, falls, scraps, dents and changes which all contribute to why parts are getting more scarce
As some parts get harder to obtain, there is always the option to have parts manufactured to fill a void and demand
Supply and demand
Most BSA motorcycle owners understand that today’s market is driven by popularity which happens to be vintage triumph motorcycles
You can find vintage Triumph parts everywhere online or at a local swap meet, but BSA parts.. that’s another story!
Classic Triumph motorcycles where more popular back then and even more popular today when compared to BSA
There is a lot of opportunity to offer more parts for BSA motorcycles but unfortunately the market for BSA parts is not as strong as it should be
When this happens, it makes manufacturing and producing new parts much more difficult because of the high risks involved
You asked - we delivered
Along with Triumph stainless steel fenders, BSA front and rear fenders are at the top of my list
We where prompted a couple times a month from our customers about how BSA fenders where getting harder to find in good shape.. not to consider the price of chrome these days..
However, we have reviewed this personal request over the past year or so in regards to BSA front and rear fenders
With myself a BSA owner and enthusiast I decided to look into the request and found that there was indeed a void when it came down to fenders for most BSA models..
Calls, emails, texts, from time to time motivated us to finally to go ahead and pull the trigger on manufacturing new BSA fenders
Alright, so there are a few types of fenders that we now offer for late model BSA singles and twins
Let’s go over our current stock and each fender to give you a better understanding an overview
B44 front and rear fenders
Our selection of front and rear fenders are designed to fit late model BSA B44 Victor Enduro and Victor Scrambler machines. We have also used both front and rear fenders on 1964-1965 BSA B40 “Enduro” star modes that had the "C15C" type frames..
*note BSA B44 front and rear fenders do not come pre-drilled
|BSA B44 (VS & E Models) 1966-70||Front||41-6533||Chrome||❌|
|BSA B44 (VS & E Models) 1966-70||Rear||40-6815||Chrome||❌|
A50 and A65 front and rear fenders
Our selection of front and rear fenders for BSA A50 / A65 models are designed to fit late models from 1966-1970.. The "6-tab" front fender however can be fitted to many pre-unit singles and twin cylinder models with swing-arms
*note BSA A50 & A65 rear fenders do not come pre-drilled
|BSA A50 / A65 Models 1966-70||Front (6-Tab)||68-6536||Chrome||✅|
|BSA A50 / A65 Models 1967-70||Rear||68-6586||Chrome||❌|
For those that have never drilled a set of fenders, it's actually easier than you might think..
To be clear, I am not a "fab" (fabrication) type of person, I like to leave that line of work to the experts, however, I do know that with patience and the proper tools you can fit a fender with excellent resets
When drilling fender holes I like to use a "stepped" drill bit
Stepped drill bits will allow one to properly drill a hole in "steps" while using the "tapered" drill bit to act as a pilot to offer a straight and round hole
In makes the job much easier and cleaner...
Should you use a "stepped" drill bit (properly) and carefully, you will not chip the chrome.. yes, it can be done!
