I needed mudflaps and fenders for my commuter bike (I live in the GREAT North West!!) so I went looking for ideas to start the creative process. I realized there is an emptiness here when trying to find 'ables about mudflaps, no mudflap love.
So I took it upon myself to start the mudflap revolution. No more will I have to put up with muddy toes and shins while pedaling to school or the grocery store. Nor will you!!
I had a plethora of PBR cans around and decided to use them. Re-use!!
It actually only took one can though.
What you'll need:
One empty 16oz beer can (I already had this, you might have to drink to create an empty)
razor blade and or tinsnips
Gorilla glue, or JB weld (to attach to fenders, rivets protrude and can be a flat hazard)
Gloves (to protect your delicate fingers)
about 30 minutes of spare time
Step 1: Decide What Statement Your Mudflap Is Going to Make
You will need to have an empty beer can, or soda can for the sub-21 crowd. You may use a can already in your possession or empty one just for this occasion.
Consumption of too many beers prior to the following steps may increase the possibility of injury.
I chose PBR, but any beer you feel represents who you are will do.
