Just cut the top and bottom out of a Foters beer can and slide the cans over the forks.

I think the carbon fiber fork guards are still available. That's the reace look if you want it. Though the ones now aren't from the best carbon fiber since the Iraq war really took off. The I know a guy who cuts his out of PVC pipe to fit.

I think I posted this somewhere but the cheap way to go is the use PVC pipe and cut it to fit. You could buy some CF sticker sheet and make it look like F I guess. But the ebay guy is pretty cheap. 1/2 of what they are usually.
