An old noobie guy, here...just wondering id anyone could tell me if skirt guards are somewhat of a universal fit...and do they come up for sale often?

The ones on my 40 Elgin are custom fit to the chain guard. It's a metal one with holes in the fenders positioned to line up with tabs on the guard. I imagine that you could create some from cords that would work.

The Elgin skirt guards, I think are the most common. I've put them on a couple of Rollfasts. With a little finagling you can line them up & fit them on some different bikes. They do come up for sale now & then.

There are different makes and models. I have seen some with horizontal louvres and some radial; and in different condition at vastly different prices. Sears may have continued them into their JC Higgins line. The CWC version might be the more challenging for interchangeability. Might be more economical to find an unwanted girls bike that already has them.

1949 Rollfast three bar. Pretty rare frame that nobody else was interested in. Reminded me of a Skylark, I felt that the skirts belonged on it.
I totally see it. So fun.

Here's a picture of an Elgin from a Sears catalog. The metal skirt with the radial design was pretty common on pre-war bikes.
