You should check out the classified on here. There are both used regular fenders (mudguards) and shorty fenders which are for sale. Some with the tail light cluster attached and others without.

Yes but they are for Bonnie / Thrux not a Speedmaster which hundleton1 appears to ride. Would I be correct in that assumption?

Unless you are all thumbs, the liklihood of you messing it up is small. Measure/mark exactly how you want it and use a good tool for the cut - no problem. [Hah! so what if it winds up a little shorter than planned:D].

There are plenty of posts with pictures to guide you through the process of bobbing.
It only takes about an hour all told, mask off the area of the back fender, use a fine blade on your skil saw or dreml (dreml has a nice diamond cut blade, pricey but does a nice job.
Sandpaper off the cut, use touch up paint on the ends and you are in business....
Go for it, you won't mess up if you go slow and easy.

You what?

Surely you'd get an accurate and quicker reponse if you simply telephoned (remember them?) a Triumph dealer.

Save your money and cut your own, then if you mess it up you can buy one.It took me 1 hour from start to finish to do mine, that included taking it off and putting it back on (cost to me - nothing)
