Originally, I intended rechroming the front mudguard, but it's in pretty bad shape, with some bad kinks and rot, so I ended up getting this one from fleabay. Really didn't want to, but little choice. Someone suggested fitting one of those pattern replacement parts but they look bloody awful (apologies to those who have them).
