I made fork guards out of the following materials: 1) 3" I.D. Black, ABS, Schedule 40 pipe 2) 3/8" thick, 3/4" wide, flat aluminum stock, approximatley 6" long. 3) Rubber bushings 4) Stainless steel bolts, washers and aircraft grade nuts (plastic centers) The ABS Schedule 40 can be shaped without worry of cracking the plastic. I used scrowl and jig saws, a bench grinder and a drill press. Attached the metal stock to the top triple clamp bolts. Then attached the shaped ABS Schedule 40 guards to the metal bracket. Final fitting was a minor twist of the aluminum to get the fork guard centered over the fork. Everything is sturdy enough to retain its position. However if it moves over time I will tie the guard to the front fender so it is secured on two sides. The guards sit out far enough from the forks so that they to not interfere with the brake and speedo lines. Total cost: $8 IMHO, looks good (especially with some stickers) and is very functional.
