Looking for a pair of wheel pants for a Christen Eagle. Used/New or any suggestions on where to find a pair. Any input would be much appreciated :)

Benny DAVIS makes carbon fiber copies of the original.

I'm buying a set from Sam James for my Eagle. I'll have to custom fit them though.

Thanks Cameron for the suggestion. I thought about him, but haven't had a chance to call. I'm a little concerned how much extra the carbon fiber ones may run vs. the standard fiberglass. I'll try to contact him tomorrow

The carbon fiber ones from Bennie were cheaper than buying new fiberglass. When I bought them a year ago.

Wow, well looks like I'll be giving them a call tomorrow for sure. Whatever route I go, I would like to get the pants that match closest to the original design (regardless of the material). Keep the Eagle looking somewhat like the original. :cool:

Benny will probably be your cheapest option then, unless you luck into a nice used set.
