I made a mud flap/ guard for mine.........
Hi, yes I cemented the leather and rubber together with RV adhesive by the makers of the Goop products. The lacing is decorative. Not a fan of making holes even in plastic and when the bike needs a good cleaning I can remove the flap and clean and treat it separately. It has been on for about 1,000 miles and has not loosened a bit.Oh, so you used a layer of leather for the outside and a layer of rubber for the inside which faces the tire. I suppose you cemented and sewed them together. Then you used velcro strips with strong adhesive tape to fasten to the mud flap and to the inside of the fender. Naturally, you cleaned the fender well to remove any dirt/mud before attaching it.
Sounds fine to me and you don't drill any holes in the fender that way. I've had mudflaps which were attached by drilling holes and then using the small, round, red reflector type screws to attach it to the fender.
Thanks, but I am not the enterpreneur type. Except for the concho and Velcro, I had the rest of the material laying around and assembly was not difficult. Deciding on the shape and making the template took the most time.I'd buy one too. (Maybe not with the red, just preference)
You may have discovered a new market, if you're up for making them.
I tried to attach the scan but it said it was too large. Hope this helps. If not we will try something else....If you could scan the paper template you could attach the JPEG or PDF of the scanned file.
Pls disregard my question. I found some stuff to use for fasteners.I want to make one of these for my 500. I, too, want to avoid drilling holes in the fender. Any suggestions on where to get the velcro? (auto store, fabric store, Wally World, etc) I have everything else. tx................James
