Default Add on mudflaps - any ideas ?

Dont know if anyone can advise - Ive got a Dawes Sardar (26" wheel
tourer) which I use for daily commuting - its got chromoplastic (SKS
cheap copies) mudguards, however the front doesnt have a mudflap.

Any ideas where I can get these as extras - mudguards are quite wide,
as tyres are 1.5 width.

Got mine from the CTC shop I think it was.

They attach by a couple of wrap around arms but they kept slipping down
so I drilled them and the mudguard and inserted a nut and bolt,no
further problems.

Any old bike shop should be able to sell you a mudflap. I glue mine on
with UHU after making sure all is clean and roughened up surfaces
slightly with sandpaper. Or you can make one from half of a tonic water
bottle. They work really well keeping feet dryer, legs mud free and
bottom of bike much cleaner

I made a front one from a PET (pop) bottle and a single rivet. It
relies on being folded in behind the stays on both sides. If it comes
out from these it flaps above 20mph

I have trimmed the sides further since the photos. Back flap is a
plastic salad cream bottle. This is rigid enough to be solid with just
a single rivet.

Home made mudguards can be longer than most commercial ones. Hand for
trailers

best wishes

I simply take and old fender and cut of "X" number of inches and pop
rivet it on. Nuts and bolts have a habbit of working lose!
