I have always keep an eye out for pre unit parts, suppliers, manufactures and prices. When looking at the acquisition of these very scares fenders (but limited demand for) and enquiring on the manufacture of these, it turns out as we have known by the look of things that only Ace classic's http://www.aceclassics.co.uk/products/mudguards
has the originals that are manufacture by http://www.auto-cycle.co.uk/index.htm
I believe also in the UK. (I could be wrong but I don't think so - I did phone them at one stage, but they did not want to sell to me and referred me to Ace). Who then sell them for 720 GBP each. Burton Bike Bits whom I have dealt with in the past also supply these parts at 220 GBP and after enquiring was told that they are UK made, but need a bit of work. Well now I am not sure after seeing these Indian made fenders on ebay and enquiring more info from them. See Front fender at 120 GBP
Rear fender at 215 GBP
After seeing this eBay listing I thought I would enquire a bit more about it. Surprisingly they responded (which is most unusual) so I thought I would post their exact reply for you guys to comment on.

Thank you so much for getting back to us.
Burton Bike bits is a very old customer of ours.
Secondly hardly 10% of the entire motorcycle parts range is manufactured in UK, rest all is manufactured in India or other parts of the world.
If a dealer markets as made in UK, then majority of dealers are talking all false.
The mudguard that you are seeing at burton bike bits is are mudguards.
The mudguards that we manufacture are all made out of tooling’s and are absolutely correct.
We are in the manufacturing of British and American motorcycles parts for over 4 decades.
And almost all the dealers worldwide know us and buy from us.
We apologise that we cannot offer you at that price.
If burton bike bits are offering you at lower price, then we recommend that you buy from them.
I am sure they must be talking of all the other repro parts that come out of India and supplied by other dealers???
