Vintage Ducati Gets GRP Mudguards

Harviglass were approached by David Critchwell, a local motorcycle restorer to see if we could assist him with an old Ducati motorcycle he was restoring. The project involved restoring the original mud guards and extending the rear one with GRP, as it had been cut down when the bike was used for track racing many years ago.

GRP Mudguard Extension

As one our directors is a keen motorcyclist & enthusiast he was keen to offer his own personal services to David! We knew we could make a GRP Mudguard extension. This involved Harviglass making a splash (lightweight) mould from the original mud guard and then using this to extend the cut down original.

Another Happy Customer

David was over the moon with the finished GRP mudguard extension, so much so he made a donation to the Northwest Air Ambulance on behalf of himself & Harviglass-Fibre Ltd. Harviglass-Fibre are pleased to have been of assistance to David and also the Northwest Air Ambulance. We look forward to seeing the finished bike David.
