Pre­ston Petty rides again

Practical Sportsbikes (UK) - - Ps World -

The world’s best off-road mud­guards are now be­ing made in Por­tu­gal by Polisport and will be dis­trib­uted by Apico.

Pre­ston Petty Prod­ucts was started by US off-roader, and ISDST sil­ver medal­list, Pre­ston Petty in 1969. He was wash­ing his Maico and dropped a plas­tic bucket full of wa­ter which sur­vived un­scathed. He then said qui­etly to him­self, “I sure wish my fend­ers were made of that.” A $1000 loan later he was in busi­ness. In 1972 he moved to a fac­tory in Ore­gon, upped pro­duc­tion, and the off-road world be­came far less strewn with smashed up bits of mud­guard.

The “Guar­an­teed Un­break­able” mud­guards, head­light and tail units, and num­ber plates are avail­able in 10 colours and seven styles. And they truly are top class. Go to pre­ston­pet­typrod­ to see the stuff while Apico gear up their UK dis­trib­u­tors.
