Carbon Fiber Fenders. Have You Thought About It?

They appear on quite a few customs. The reasons? Light, very strong and durable and a unique look if you keep them “raw”, non painted.

Carbon fiber fenders and tanks are not new in the industry, but more often used on sport bikes. Rods & Rides Motorcycle company sees an opportunity in the American V-Twin custom industry and now offers ready to bolt-on narrow & wide 21″fenders to accommodate the 120 series tires, 23″ for both front and rear, even the extra-wide to cover the 330 mm and 360 mm rear tires.

Their fenders are delivered ready to be trimmed and mounted, nothing else needed. There is no need for paint or polish. The price is a flat $599.00 across the board no matter what size you pick. Rods & Rides Motorcycle Company. 888-70

    Can fuel tanks (female mold for 1936-1964, 3.5 gallon tanks) be made, that will withstand

    the compression of a left-tank, pop-up, shut off valve assembly (by using an internal 3/16 stainless).

    steel sleeve between the upper and lower bungs) … we wonder? Raw fiber of course.

    Great concept, like the look on certain bikes, but on a HD, I don’t know of many guys who would spent that kind of money on a fender. Still prefer Steel. You can always “modify” or fix a steel fender, not so much a Carbon fiber one….

    They look good on some customs.

    Think about it….

    Steel or even aluminum is the way to go for those that ride.

    As for seeing “skinny tire” bikes out on the road….U couldn’t hook ’em up and they would ride exactly like…well say….a bicycle at speed…not very damn good.

    …because the guys who mount 360mm tires want to shave off every gram of extra weight.

    and there’s nothing wrong with skinny tires at speed – at least up to 120, the old commando did pretty good on a 4 inch rear. pretty sure Vincents hooked up pretty good on similar rubber back in the day, too.

    We have been making these fenders since 2005. Nothing new. I do have some left for $450 – 21″ 1/2 blanks and 18×5.5 rears precut on the sides. Also did the gas tanks (like the one we did for Russell Mitchel’s build off bike). Sold out of those real quick. Maybe have to pull the moulds out of storage and make some more.

    Can they hold a passenger and weight on the back ????
    I know not everybody wants a 2-up bike
    Just curious ??
    Despite that, they look good !!!

    At RUB…because guys that build those kids of machines don’t hang out at bike nights or Starbucks for that matter.
