The rear section of the front mudguard is not long enough to effectively keep road debris off the exhaust and front of the engine. Especially with the Cruiser with its chromed parts this is annoying and causes unnecessary cleaning and polishing. The mudguard extender solves this problem effectively and elegantly.
The original painted mudguard does not need to be modified, the extender is simply glued to the mudguard with commonly available silicone adhesive (not included). Made of tough ABS plastic.
