front fender extension

Good morning gents, a newbie here to this site. I have recently brought an 1994 a9 vn750 and am trying to buy an front fender extension and an engine guard, but am hitting a blank wall over here in the UK, in advise and help where to get them. Any suggestions would be gratefully received.
Thanks

If no one here is selling what you want in the "Swap or Sell" section, your best bet is searching EBay....
Having while that went out of production 10 years ago usually means finding parts or aftermarket do-dads a challenge....especially on a bike that had so few aftermarket items to start with.

When you say a "fender extender" I assume you mean something like a mud guard? There are companies that make sort of universal fit extensions, and I've seen folks make their own from plastic fenders off other bikes.
If you have measurements you might be able to use one made for a different bike:

Again, an online search may be called for.

Thanks for the link KM. I never realized that such a part was even made for sale. They even have a Canadian site with CAN $ prices and no cross border exchange rates and duty, etc.

I have thought about making up something myself from a scrap piece of plastic or rubber mud flap, and may still try it as they do not list one for the vn750, or seem to list any width or length dimensions to make comparisons to fit other bikes.

Front fender extensions have used a large piece of truck mud flap, and for rear fender extension a large piece of neoprene rubber.
