DIY Rear mudguard.

Here's my DIY mudguard. I think you lads call 'em fenders over there?

Nice work! I made something similar but out of a rubber vehicle mud flap and attached it to the battery box to protect the regulator and limit the spray.

It's a Heidenau K60 Scout. I put about 8500 trouble free miles on it and swapped it out to try a Mitas E07

Did you ride with the Heidenau in the rain? The only people that I know that had them hated them in the rain; they loved them in the dirt but one of them even said the bike was unridable in the rain.

Never had any issues in the rain here in AK. But our asphalt is not very smooth so that may be why. It had great traction in all conditions, well except snow and ice
