Does anyone know of any custom metal and/or wood bike fender makers here in the UK at all please?

Many thanks,

Lee.

yes, but only for motorbikes, although the principle should be the same.

i'll see if i can dig up some links.

:D Squaretree in Edinburgh make them: http://squaretreecycle.tumblr.com/
Pricey though...£142.

A bit closer than Woody's, but still not UK...Cerchi Ghisallo make some to go with their wooden rims.

There's an Instructables post, if you want to make some youself: http://www.instructables.com/id/Laminated-Wood-Bicycle-Mudguards/

All the best,

I'm looking for metal ones as it will tie in with the bike more. (Still going to look at that link mind you :) )

Hey Kais, I like them and have looked at them a few times but, for the shallow vanity's sake, feel a fluted or hammered fender would look better.

You buy them, I'll hammer them and then charge you 40 quid...

I could make a former and laminate up some wooden ones for you - with your choice of veneer if you wanted to go down the wooden root/route. I can manage to make things that mostly don't fall apart.

I'm not joking.
