    Very easy to DIY.
    Google images of it or the Bender Fender and you can print your own similar one.
    Transfer the design to some thin plastic and fix in place with a couple of tie-wraps

    I do not think that any are sold in the US just yet. There is Mucky Nutz, but they are over seas as well. It costs less than $20 shipped though.

    You can use a notebook cover from Walmart/office supply store. Get one that has the plastic cover on it and I have found that it is just about perfect for this application.

    They may or may not be sold here, but you can buy one from their site and they'll ship here. I have a couple. There is also the Mucky Nutz Bender Fender. But, as mentioned, you could cut your own out of a 1/32" plastic sheet (which I have also done).

    Check out the Mucky Nutz Sale page...

    SALE

    They have their original as well as misprinted versions for ~50% off. You can get 2 shipped to the US for around $20. Been using these for a couple years with no complaints. I also tried the DIY approach since I already had one as a template but for the price why bother. These are good quality and work as described.

    Homemade Alternative

    This is really easy to make. I took a regular pocket folder I used in school, and cut it out to shape. I made the outline on graph paper first so everything was symmetrical, then I cut it out, and traced it onto the folder.

    One of the rare occasions where you should support the original version for the rediculously cheap price they have charged from the beginning - mucky nutz!

    Great product, very simple, and they are cheap as cheap!

    While I'm always supportive of small business, it's sort of like coffee. I'll happily spend $5 if I want one and I'm out, if I'm home, I'll make my own in a few minutes for a fraction of the price. Does the simple fact that someone has a business selling something I can make myself more conveniently and for far less money make me feel guilty for not buying from them? I think not.

    I've made my own fender as well using the attached templates and a $.75 poly binder.

    Images are of my winter ones, the largest you can make using a binder. The template has smaller options as well.

    I've made a ton using flexible cutting boards. You can find 3-5 packs of multiple colors for under $10. Each cutting board will make a front and rear fender!

    Here is the materials I used. I made a bunch that colored matched my friends bikes, and did black for my all black bikes.
    MIU Flexible Cutting Board, Set of 5 : Amazon.com : Kitchen & Dining

    For black, all I could find was this:

    Linden Sweden 2-Pack Bendy Flex Cutting Board, Black : Amazon.com : Kitchen & Dining

    It's pretty thick, but has a more durable rubbery feel BUT you can still cut it with scissors. It comes in a ton of colors and the sheets are just big enough to make a full size one for the front, and a rear one with shorter "small" side lip.

    I'll post of pix of some if anyone is interested.

    Nice bike rack. How you like? The bike is pretty sweet as well. Looks to be a pretty aggresive set up.

    So I went the DIY route with a binder..

    and the results weren't stellar. Granted, the binder may have been to blame due the plastic, but I was undeterred. I did a 20 miler on these, both broke, but remained rideable. The rear even stopped some dog poo from sprayin me. My second attempt used cutting boards per Mr. Lynch. I bought a 5 pack at TJ Maxx for $6 and sprayed the "blue" with plasti dip to help keep the thing together if it fractures again. Here are my fail pics and the new fenders (not fully installed yet)
