Hi All, 60+ and building a trike. I am looking advice regarding fitting mudguards to my vw trike. The mudguards are fibreglass. If anyone has drawings/plan for fitting the mudguards or can give me any advice on how to fit them I would be most grateful.

Hello and welcome, if you could post pics of the parts and where you want to fit, we could probably advise on the best way to go about it.

Hi guys,
And thanks for the prompt reply. My trike is an unfinished (not half started) vw trike I bought which required a lot of work. I still have to fit the mudguards, find and fit a fuel tank and carry out a complete re-wire. I have just bought a custom loom. I need info on now to fit the mudguards so that they will be legal. I am also looking for a cylindrical fuel tank with a capacity of at least seven gallons. I would be grateful for any help or advice you can offer and if you can supply plans or parts I of course will be only too willing to pay the cost. I will post some photos within a day or so.
I really want to finish the trike and would love to be road legal before the end of the year. Many thanks.

7 imperial gallons is just under 32 litres which is more than just about any motorcycle.
Metal jerry cans don't come that big unless anyone knows otherwise?
How about a custom made polished stainless tank?

I know virtually sfa about trikes but I will help out anyway if I can.

Hi All,
Friar Tuck, here are the photos of the trike. Hope these give you a clear view of the problem.

I cant seem to send multiple images so sending one at a time.
