Prototype mudguard on the Trike.

I saw this was I was away in Port Macquarie. So I’ve given ago. This is actually my second attempt. The first was about an inch away from the ground but when I sat on it, it was very close to the ground and it threw sand and gravel continuously showering me and brushing the road, the exact opposite of what I was looking for.

So its now about an inch and a half above the ground when I’m sitting on it. Yet to give it a go.

Parts List

  1. Spray Suppressor brush (from a truck guard in a half circle shape, I just straightened the piece I needed)
  2. Aluminium checker plate (Bunnings)
  3. Sail Track (Bunnings)
  4. 2 x T-Bolt Clamps (Truck supply place)
  5. Small stainless steel strap about 50mm each, I used a spare clamp which I cut with tin snips.
  6. 5 pop rivets

Process and Info

The clamp holds the s/s strap bent at right angles and pop riveted to the checker plate.

The checker plate is pop riveted to the checker plate
