This is my fendered, Tom Daniels Ice T, hence the word play of the naming (Defender)...

The modifications:

Fenders, ...top chop, ...tailgate closed, ...wired motor, ...exhaust system and exhaust tips, ...front and rear lights, ...two single seats, ...shifter, ...dashboard, ...wheels with machined and polished aluminum sleeves, ...front gums are made of an NBR laboratory tubing, the back rubbers are carved of a bicycle handlebar grip...

Hope, you like it.

Thank you all very much for the kind comments, I really do appreciate them! B)

Rubber tubing and a bicycle hand grip - genius! Very cool model. The paint is amazing!

I like to go new ways to get better methods, to find new materials and manufacture so cheaper my tires.

Here I have tried to make the front ones from a piece of a hose.

The important thing is, the hose should be made of rubber and may have no lichen or wall reinforcement.

This hose has the name Perbunan®, is not very expensive and is easy to edit.

The inner tube diameter is chosen so, that it no longer needs to be processed.

But he should be about one millimeter smaller than the outside diameter of the rim, for a better hold.

These back rubbers are of a handlebar grip for bicycles.

With a little editing and mounted on my homemade wheels, the whole thing looks like this:
