LHT Mud Flap

I'm embarrassed to think about how long I've wanted to put a mud flap on the front fender of my LHT and how long it actually took me today once I started this mini-project. All told it took me less than 15 mins to cut a mud flap from an empty milk jug, drill a couple holes in my front fender and bolt the flap on.

I am believer in fenders on practical bikes, but most store bought fenders are too short to provide good coverage from road spray. This is especially true of the front wheel where a short fender lets all the nasty road grime and water shoot right at the BB & chainrings. Luckily it only takes a few inches of plastic to solve this problem.
