Leather Mud Flaps

I started by putting my mud flaps on the front (which was kind of an arsepain)



Time: 30 minutes
Tools needed:
Masking tape, power drill, 9mm box wrench, #2 phillips screwdriver, pen or marker, leather punch, provided bolts plus 2 1/4" longer bolts of similar diameter.

instructions:
Mask off edge of fender, and drill a pilot hole then full size hole at dead center back.
Put leather flap inside fender and put provided bolt through already-punched hole in flap and a new hole in fender. Tighten nut on bolt to finger tight - this will align the flap. Then take backing off sticky Velcro, and use Velcro to position flap fronts. Mark place to drill, then drill pilot hole through fender and into leather of flap (marks place to punchhole) making sure to keep flap tight to inside of fender while drilling, and avoiding puncturing your tire! Repeat for the other side, remove flap, drill out pilot holes to desired size. remove masking tape,and put provided bolt through flap at dead center back, then use 2 longer bolts to secure the flap fronts to the sides of the fender.
Lastly secure all nuts tightly.



..............................................................
And now on to the rear, which due to the pipes was a somewhat bigger arsepain



Time: 30 minutes
Tools
required/instructions:
Same as above, but fender sides do not require longer bolts.
Hole on pipe side of fender may need to be different from shaft side of fender due to difficulty of drilling if not removing pipes.

As you can see, it looks pretty damn hot now!





And i tell ya, i'm certainly happy with it!







And now my bike matches the rest of me!
