Full fender NB Flares

I had been looking for these at a reasonable price for a while and now it looks like they are available. Previously only straight out of Japan at some absurd price.

I emailed them just to verify that this page is up to date. I'll post up when I hear back.

In for cheap knock-offs!

AutoKonexion? Any reason you cant run full Kevlar fenders? I know the AK kevlar fenders for the NA that clear 275s are supposed to weigh 3 pounds, just sayin.

rlogan 02-26-2013 10:15 AM

Still haven't heard back from them...hopefully they are just slow with emails.

Leafy 02-26-2013 10:29 AM

It took a day or two when I emailed them. They're not exactly clear with what is in stock and what they're not going to have done till the middle of the summer. Like the kevlar fenders for 275s wont be ready till mid summer.

rlogan 02-26-2013 10:36 AM

Are you talking about Autokonexion or the link above?

Leafy 02-26-2013 10:45 AM

Oh sorry, autokonexion, I missed your last line that you emailed the modern solo people.

rlogan 02-26-2013 11:05 AM

No problem, I just like these because they wrap the full fender all the way down, unlike the other options that just cover the top. Previously these were unavailable unless you were willing to pay $$$ and have them shipped from overseas.

rlogan 03-08-2013 03:49 PM

Good news, I emailed again and got an immediate response. I am placing my order today and I hope it wasn't a mistake but he quoted $199 set + shipping.

GeneSplicer 03-08-2013 06:55 PM

That quote sure is lower than their advertised price of $495/set... got me thinking now.

rlogan 03-08-2013 07:10 PM

Exactly...I Just heard back and he's got to "get down to salt lake" to pick up some boxes and says he'll have me a total by middle of next week. I'll let you know the final cost when I get word. I assuming by set he does not mean pair.

rlogan 03-18-2013 12:34 PM

We have 2 sets shipping today, I'll post up pics when they arrive...

They were $230 shipped for each set. He says he has one more set ready and will lay up more as needed. I'd hold off until we get ours in hand to check out quality.

UrbanSoot 03-19-2013 10:40 PM

I might take a set if it's of allright quality.

wannafbody 03-19-2013 11:10 PM

For some reason I seem to think that NB's look better with flares than NA's.

rlogan 03-20-2013 10:36 AM

Tracking says they'll be here tomorrow. I'll post up some pics when they arrive.

Good to hear on the response. I didn't expect much considering he's "out of the game". We haven't seen that car in at least a couple years and I think it's been sold.

rlogan 03-20-2013 11:40 AM

I know I had seen it for sell a while back and really wasn't holding out much hope that I was going to hear back from him. I was even more surprised to hear that he was willing to make more of them. We'll take it though....

Can you even fit a decent 17" tire on the NB without the tire diameter being too big?
