Digital. The complete front guard which is in two pieces. Cheers. :028:

 HACKLE, you need the large plastic part I can send it to Australia, but I only have that part and it is blue.

The lower black part, I don't have it.

If you are interested send me a private. I suppose that due to customs problems there will be no problems.

Sorry to hear of this, but have you any idea How or Why it broke ?

Did something get thrown up from the road ?

Did a Bolt or some attachment such as a Light Fitting work loose ?

Cheers  :821:

Coconut, I think my troubles started some time ago. Maybe 2019 when I pushed the Trophy off the centre stand with the front disk lock still in place. I can see your face now. The lock barely touched the guard resulting in the smallest [barely noticeable] crack.
  I had previously put some black tape on the lower section of the guard and fork bottoms to prevent stone damage. Like a slack bastard [that's the truth] I didn't remove the guard and get it plastic welded. I can still see your face.
  In time with vibration I'm sure this small crack grew and eventually called it a day at that time of the morning. I agree with you, yes I'm slack.  :169: So I'll just wait out the delivery of the new front guard [two pieces].
  Off course if a used/second hand guard was to surface, I'd take it for fitting. Still get the new one giving me a spare. Because of the dwindling numbers of Trophy's and spares out there maybe we all need to accumulate a few spares.
  Thanks for everyone's concerns. But an old saying says it all. "SELF INFLICTED WOUNDS HURT THE MOST". Cheers.  :821: :028:

Spares? Spares? We don't need no Stinkin' Spares!  I have lots of them.  I even give some away to some in need at times.  I'm accumulating more!  I just don't have a front fender YET!  I'll never have enough of the fasteners (fixings).
