If you can find ANY parts for your bike, you'd better jump on it. Or pick up a 2nd bike for parts. I can only relate my recent experience: A yr. + 1/2 ago, I was parked in the local school parking lot for an American high school football game. I had parked my 1800 C perfectly in the center of a parking space between a car and a raised-up pickup truck. After the game I came to the bike to find 2 kids, standing there. One asked if this was my bike. I said yes, why? First glance it looked perfectly OK. He said "I hit your bike". I looked closer, and he said his right rear tire caught my highway peg, bending the single mounting bolt about 30*, and as he rolled to the right, the lug on the tire caught the front fender, putting an egg sized dimple in it. How he didn't knock the bike over on its right side, IDK. But the kid was decent enough to stay and do the right thing, probably because he was in an assigned parking spot and was "on camera". After his insurance co. processed my claim, I was unable to get a new one from Honda, as they no longer had them in stock. I searched about 10 minutes, and found a company in southern Indiana (Cheap Cycle Parts) that said they had 80 of them on hand. I ordered one at the price of $789, and the insurance paid for it. I received it in perfect condition in about a week. That price was maybe 5% cheaper than what Honda would have charged, provided they could ship one, which they couldn't. I have been told that company is no longer in business, but someone had to buy out the inventory. I'd be curious to know where all that stock went. Good luck with your search. Let us know how it goes.Hello all,
I've purchased my VTX a few months ago, knowing there it's been "loved" so there are a few bits I knew I'd change when I got round to it.
The most pressing is the front fender, which has a large rust patch, causing the paint to bubble and split.
I've been looking around at replacements, with Motea selling several for around £200. They state it's not designed for the VTX but it will fit it. Has anyone bought one from them and fitted it? (please see picture)
I'm in the UK with several being advertised in the US but shipping almost doubles the cost of the Fender and they are normally salvaged/damaged.
Has anyone purchased or know of any company that sells either original/aftermarket replacements from UK or Europe?
Any help would be great!
