This might be a long shot but I'm looking for both front and rear fenders in lime green. The front fender is part # 35004-1043-6w and fits 1982-86 kd80 and 1979-80 kx80. The rear is part# 35022-1044-6w and fits 1982-86 kd80.
I've tried all the sources I can think of and can't seem to find any in New or restorable condition. Any info or possible leads on one or both would be greatly appreciated.

Thats why I love this place. I spent hours trying to find anything and you guys have the answer in 15 min. Any ideas on the rear fender, unfortunately it's kd specific.

Call the guys at DC Plastics on the phone and ask them. However, if they do make one it will be a low gloss textured finish on the plastic, not slick and shiny. Maybe it doesn't matter?

Other than that, maybe someone here can chime in with a good Kawasaki source who may know where to check obsolete stock. Some dealers hang onto some of the old stuff and some specialize in it.

I tried dc first. They don't have a mold for it but say that if I can get them a good fender they can use it.

Yes. I looked at that one but was leary on the discoloration on the back of the fender.
I guess I could buy it and see if I can restore it. At least I would have a complete one.

I purchased some off eBay and went the restore route. Photo

I think i could of done a better job of sanding. I stared with a razor blade then 320/600/1000/1200/2000 grit wet sand followed by buffing with a polishing compound. The key is not to switch to the next grit to early. I think it will be alright for a bike i plan on beating the piss out of, chasing my kids around the yard on there bikes. Photo
