I'm in need of a rear mud guard and a stem similar to what is shown in the attached photos. Are these parts available?

Here's the type of stem I'm looking for:

My current stem is designed to mount the factory display and keyswitch, both of which I'm replacing so I want the older type of stem that has a nice clean and simple design.

Here's the type of rear mud guard I'm looking for:
Image

My current rear mud guard wraps all the way around the wheel. I'm looking for the shorter-style one that came with the earlier Metro models.

I have 3 Metros. All of the originally had the rear fender that wraps all the way around. I cut them off like the one in the picture on all of mine. I don't think there was a factory version of the shorter ones. Cutting it shorter is very easy.

Hmm... I think you may be correct here. Still looking for the older stem though. Any advice on getting a nice clean cut on the fender? Should some ginger Dremel work and fine-grit wet sanding suffice? I'd want to be careful to minimize rough edges and scratch marks.

I just used a hack saw, then used a flat file to round the edges. Stuff is very easy to cut. I found one of them had a tendency to bounce against the tire on bumps, so I used a heat gun to soften it near the bolt and bent it up slightly so it doesn't hit anymore.

+1 for the cuts
All of the short ones have turned out to be either broken or broken on purpose.
I can scavenge the bins at the new work to see if we have anything for that stem otherwise I can order direct through a2b for you if I cant find it

Thanks for the offer. We can discuss details over PM as appropriate. I feel I've derailed this thread topic enough already. :?
