top suggestion.
I recently acquired a lidl gas powered heatgun and heatshrink bits so am always on the look-out for innocent uses of it.
and am I the only one dazzled by SKS's variants in fixing systems? - my garage has a stack of their old mudguards ready to be plundered for bits.

don't cut them too short because if you change brand of tyres you may need a bit of expansion room to get clearance
That, at least, is no issue, as the bike originally had 27x1.25 wheels. There's a *lot* of clearance.

If you don't mind green - 10 for £2 on eBay: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1-10-1-8...al-Pipe-Tube-Caps-Hat-x-10-Green/362001840212

Search for 'aerial cap' rather than 'mudguard cap' :okay:

Another top suggestion, thanks.
Ebay is full of cheap chinese bits that some company has appropriated and massively marked up, sometimes aided and abetted by a bit of logo-ing/branding. Can't help but wonder how you discovered them. Some sort of picture search?
