Clive at leeson bikes does them and a very good job from what I have heard too.

Now available, Leeson machined middleburn bashguards. Using your standard middleburn bashguard we are now able to machine away the excess aluminium to create a lighter more compact version.

Price: £10 (when suppling your own bashguard


There's an example from the website.

You can contact Clive on 01933 314285, or email him on leesonbikes@tesco.net.

ah!  :">

those stoopid teachers said it wasnt possible  :blink:

silly teachers..........

yeah, i'll blame it on the teachers :P

Exactly, the ones they have in schools/colleges are mini.

You can do it with the small ones but cos it's only alu it will be ok, but you just have to push into it more instead of clamping down and make the machine wobble :P
