Almost exactly what I did, and they look great.

Is that rubber roofing material? I really like the RRM, as it catches the drips, and is flexible enuf to not be a problem with toe strike, while offering very little (if any) wind resistence. A few pop rivets, a few PR backing plates(little washers) and you are good to go...

It's the rubber you use for stair runners..... It's very lite and flexable, and works really well. it was only $2.50 a foot and I have enough for a dozen bikes LOL....

Do you have any pics of yours?

Nice. My old Raleigh needs a pair. Both my old Raleighs need a pair. My old Roadmaster needs a foxtail.
