    I have made them out of a variety of materials. I typically like leather on my vintage bikes and some form of plastic or vinyl on my more modern bikes.

    Full fenders and then add a mudflap to it. Chain guards and cases are a plus. My most ridden Raleigh 3 speed has well over 35,000 miles on it, chains last 7,000+ miles with minimal maintenance.

    I use a 1989 Giant Iguana. I used the clamp on brackets for the lowrider. No fork mounts on mine either.
