Retro mudflaps for Vol/C50

I crafted a set for my C50, and several folks here and in other forums have asked if I could produce them for sale, so here goes. I am asking $25.00 for a rear, $20.00 for a front, or $40.00 for a set; this includes shipping in the U.S. and mounting hardware. I can stain the leather brown, or any other color desired, and the rivets can be red, blue, green, amber glass, or even synthetic turquoise. I will offer other options in the concho, such as a Maltese cross, when I can pick out a few to stock up on. Send me a PM for payment details and any questions about variations. Thanks, Mark
FRONT: There are two stiffeners in the front fender, and the flap is notched around these.

REAR:
A layer of rubber is on the tire side, and there is a strip of thin plastic in the center to make the flap stiffer.
The glass-head rivets are NOT reflectors, but do show up in following headlights.

good luck on your venture! This is also a mark for me to view this thread later. The server i'm on (NMCI) blocks hosted photos

Sure, either with rivets or using a heavier guage leather and tooling them in. PM me your ideas and I'll let you know the cost. -Thanks, Mark

Thanks! I see some conchos there that I haven't seen before. I styled these after some original old ones I saw pix of- one thing I'm keeping my eye out for is chrome or stainless bars or chevrons that I could add; one the original flaps looked great with those. BTW, love yer avatar, Rat Fink rules!

Do you think it is possible to incorporate some LED's ?

Show us some more of your work. Leatherwork is an art and isn't easy to do. I respect the people that can make a living doing it. Keep up the great work!!!
