Re: jim in chicago first build schwinn drifter
My Schwinn Landmark didn't come with fenders. I added a pair of black composite Planet Bike full wrap fenders, and I am quite pleased with them. No rubbing, no rattling, and they're shiny black as though they're painted metal. I think I only paid like $20 for the pair, too, putting them on par with modifying cheap metal fenders, if you count the cost of your time.
