mudflaps

do any of you guys ever wish your 700 had wider fenders? I`m in the process of building some fender extensions to keep the tires from slinging so much mud on me. # 1 they have to look good, and go along the lines of the 700xx. it`s about the best looking bike out there, and I don`t want to screw the looks up, # 2, want to cut down on, or eliminate the mud slinging. would any of you be interested in a set, if I can come up w/ something and get maier plastics to stamp some out ? there will be a slight amount of fender trimming on the rear-"very slight", and right now doesn`t look like any on the front. these will be effective. maybe 2 diff.versions for those that don`t want any mud at all.
let me hear from you if you`d be interested--------bob

I'd like to see what you come up with...not sure about actually having them made since there's not really much demand for them.

the front mud guards are hardly noticable, but the superb job they do outweighs any looks problem !
I hate getting covered in mud and have often thought about making some rear one that mount the same way as the fronts, rather then make holes or drill into the plastics.

I drilled small holes every 2 5/8" inches, and used 8/32 s. steel screws washers and nuts, ( larger alum. washers underneath) I will need wider mat`l to go clear over behind the heel gaurds. have a pattern made that looks good, but haven`t got the right stuff for it yet. my sons racer doesn`t have fenders at all, he even said the fronts looked good. more later---bob

forgot, the holes are so small, they wouldn`t look bad if the mud gaurds wee removed.

My comment was more so when you mentioned having "Maier stamp some out". If it's specific to the 700XX (at least that's what I'm understanding you to say), then I don't see how the 700XX has enough demand to have someone produce these. I'm still interested in seeing what you have done!
