Hi All,

Has anyone fitted mud flaps to therear of a Tiger Cat ?

Looking for some inspiration on how to make them fit on a flimsy piece of fibreglass.

Reason for doing this - on a run last year my R1R tyres kicked up loose stones and cracked the windscreen of a following Mini .... trying lo avoid a repeat issue this year.

Any pictures or drawings on possible bracket arrangements will be welcome.

cheers
Jim.

Hi, I can't post pictures to this forum so can't show you how I did mine but I bought sheets of rubber which were carbon fiber effect. I then cut them to the width of the cycle wings (taking up the bend in the cycle wing) and then cut to the length wanted (you'll need them longer than you think). I then fixed them with three bolts and spread washers across the top.

I used Rally Design Escort mud flaps cut in half and rivetted.  Perfect service for past four years and many, many miles.

Thanks Mark & Dave for the info .....

Should have made my post more clearer ......

Looking to add mud flaps to the rear of the Cat however there is a lip on the bottom which prevents direct attachment.

Dont want to remove this as I believe its for strength at the foot of the rear tub.


cheers
Jim.

You could remove the lip, then sandwich the mudflap to the tub using a piece of angled aluminium to add back the strength?
