I dont know about cheap but you can buy stuff at cool cruisers of texas also known as ccot or if your looking for aluminium parts you can go with aqualou.

CCOT is the cheapest, but has fitment issues.

You get what you pay for, when it comes to sheetmetal.

Heritage would be my recommendation.

heritage sheet metal

i've purchased 3 fenders from ccot and there a good company don't get me wrong...but the quality of the steel is really thin.... heritage sheet metal looks to me to be the thickest.....that's my choice...

Send a message via AIM to treerootCO
Contact Proffitt's Cruisers in Delta Colorado, he is a distributor of Heritage sheet metal
