Winter is staring down in here in south hemisphere and i like to use my bike to go places near my house. So the idea was to spend as less as posible to add mud guards to my comuter bike.

My english is not the best, but i'll do my best to be clear.

Step 1: Materials and tools

the list of materials i used were:
75mmx1m PVC sanitary tube
1 screw and nut
4 cable ties

Electric Saw
Gas torch

i recomend the use of safety glasses and gloves.
of course you need a bike to mount them and depending on the geometry and accesories of the bike the result and procedure may vary.

looks American top 40 its out of the budget?....
I have also heard of filling a piece of PVC pipe with sand.&nbsp; Then soften it with a heat gun.&nbsp; The sand distributes the heat evenly.&nbsp; Supposedly you can then bend the whole section of pipe.&nbsp; After it has cooled, slit the top half away from the bottom half and attach the top half to the bike.<br />
Great job, looks pretty good for some PVC.<br /> <br /> Another way you could do this is to cut some steel sheet with a jigsaw, hammer a curve into it and then bolt/ziptie them in place. <br /> <br /> very nice.<br />
