Post pics of your bicycle  bodge jobs here!

1st up, Crud Catcher mudguard transformation. The rear kept falling off every time I went over earth worm castings so a more robust solution was sought: bolt it directly to the frame via the panier bolt holes on the seat stay. The mud guard was wider than the seat stay so I used rear shock bushings as spacers. Unfortunately I'd chopped a little too much off the front of the mudguard meaning I still got sprayed by the rear wheel. This was solved by cutting the arms off a Mucky Nutz Fender Bender and super gluing it (after roughing it up with sandpaper) to the Crud Catcher. I disliked the front Crud Catcher attached to the downtube so attached it directly to the fork arch using a jubilee clip (they are quite old crappy forks). To prevent a small amount of water escaping via the usual mounting holes, I liberally applied the glue gun on the top and underside of them,

Had a fair few get me home gaffs tape and cable tie moments. But the best to date was on Daisy's bike at at a bull track race when her chain guide broke. Can't remember who's idea it was, but for a bottle top and the magic cable ties it work pretty well  8)

No photo but around 16 years ago on a ride I snapped 2 of my granny ring chainring bolts due to the sheer mental amount of torque I was putting out. This bent the granny ring. As I didn't have the required crank extractor tool etc with me, I undid the remaining bolts, slid the granny ring over the BB shell towards the frame and secured it there with my friends sunglasses strap
