18 alloy/aluminum fenders

I am looking to get some “sportier” fenders for my R51/3. It currently has heavy deep valance steel fenders.
There is a bike recycler near me and I was wondering if anyone could point me to a model/year bike I can get some 18” aluminum fenders with less valance.
Thanks

removed "alloy"

Oh God! You used the word ALLOY!
Alloy doesn't mean aluminum rant ensues in 3.......2.......1.....

Mostly brit bikes had the alloy fenders. You may have better luck with walridge.com or clubmanracing.com

I had been to clubmanracing.com but could not find where to find the fenders.
I will look at walridge.com

There's a lot of chopper/bobber vendors that offer aluminum fenders for custom jobs. Don't know if that's what you are looking for, but J & P Cycles have them in different radiuses, and other vendors do too. these are modeled on the British style. J & P has an online catalog.
