Steel narrow rear racing/sports mudguard - of type originally fitted to Norton SOHC Manx style racing mudguard - 4 1/4" wide, correct radius for 4.25 x 19" or 20" rear tyres, specially made for RacingVincent
These narrow rear sports/racing mudguards are 'C' section, of 4 1/4" width and should be considered a matching item to the steel front sport/racing mudguard shown here - A11/531.
These rear mudguards have a 15" radius (taken from the wheel spindle centre to the top of the 'C' section), which makes them suitable for 19" rear tyres such as Avon GP or Roadrunners. I have also matched them up to a 20" rear tyre, as used originally on Norton Internationals, and they also look suitable for this tyre form. We also have them made longer than most rear mudguards, so they can be cut to your length - in case you want them with a longer drop at the rear as some older racing or grasstrack bikes had.
They are the ideal mudguard for fitting to Racing Internationals and SOHC Manx models, and I used the mudguard from one of my own racing Norton's as a pattern to have these made. They are made 55" long - a long length, so they can be cut to your own length. At this length it gives you the option to either have them on a roadgoing International - with a longer drop so a number plate and light can be fitted, or shortened slightly for racing version as used on M30 and Manx models. Look at photos of my Racing International or Big Plunger Manx on www.racingvincent.co.uk to see ideal length when using A11M grab handle.
When looking for this style of mudguard about 8 years ago I could not find any good ones anywhere - so ended up having these and the corresponding sports/racing font mudguard made specially for RacingVincent by a specialist mudguard manufacturer, since then they have proved to be two of our most popular items.
- We always post these mudguards seperately from the main order (to protect from damage). Packing is normally a bit extra from a normal order because we either have to buy the big boxes and/or extra amount of bubble wrap required, and the Royal Mail postage amount which we will confirm to you before payment.
March 2017: Back in stock again, but the inevitable price rise from my manufacturer (my margin as before)
Update November 2023: I am sorry to say that we will no longer be able to offer these mudguards to customers outside of the UK: we apologise this is the case - but despite how well we package them - unscrupulous mailing and courier services still seem to find a way to damage them in transit - and then do everything they can to avoid us raising a claim - leaving us with a total loss and huge amount of wasted time trying to chase them. Sorry - but if you are visiting the UK, or have a friend in the UK to deliver to - then email us before ordering - we will help if we can. Best wishes Paul
