    Last one I saw was perspex attached with nuts and bolts then 'smoothed' off with silicone sealant, looked the nuts Laughing

    Easiest way to do it, and the best looking is a T5 Mark 1 horncast with a Lambretta GP mudguard. The hole's just about big enough to fit the horncast into the top of it, meaning it looks stomping. The fact that GP mudguards are fibreglass means that the weight of the front end is reduced, so when you go over pot holes you skip over the top.

    I was just going to suggest using a remade fibre glass GP mudgaurd. Must other types would look very strange....

    Not too hard to do, just don't see the point myself, much prefer a hugger as a none standard muddy. But each to their own etc.

    As above use a GP mudguard and change the horncast to T5 mk1 due to the shape, or you could use a corresponding lammy one.
