Mid faring project

Postby boomtank » Thu Nov 09, 2017 6:29 pm

So after seeing these on various members bikes, I just had to have them, Unfortunately, the cost and availability of them is a no go situation.

So, I'll make my own. :D I figure start with construction paper. Make a rough shape, add tabs, make a second cut to fit and form the best I can. Then make a wood mold and heat and press raw pvc onto the form.

Looking good. Will some one remove there panels and post some pics of the mounts? It's hard to see and get them just right. Also the bends in the pieces are hard to make out. Even just some high resolution close ups would be great.

Hope to get one set done before it gets really cold.
Keep the rubber side down out there ;)

Thank you for the pictures spot. That gives me a better ideal of where the tabs are supposed to be. :D

I'll keep the project updated as I can.
