Nothing looks better than a brand-new, correct specification part, take the front mudguard (fender) back to new condition, without the hassle of repair, wet & dry sanding, priming and then trying to achieve exactly the right colour. You have better things to do with your time and the modern-classic this fender fits is worth plenty of time being lavished upon it!
Correct specification part. Saves time and money if the old part is damaged and degraded. Instant improvement on the appearance of the machine.
