Ooohhh missus.... well thats ok then so no one can say I copied Rob lolz.... Id love to know a bit more about the CF molding process tho if you get time to update with that it would be good.

What is it you want to know?? making plugs, molds and laying the CF or just the CF process? My advise would be to contact Boba ;D If I had of known what was involved I wouldn't have started ;D
Can post pics of the of the start to finish process if your interested.

I am as I am thinking of making a CF copy of the fairing and tank/seat/tail unit on the MG Le Mans to try and get the weight down.

No 2 (White version) for me. No 4 and 5 are very good, but I think Motodd's look better when a bit 'raw/badass' rather than more polished and rounded.

I'd love to ride one - never had the pleasure.
History, eh! It's just one bloody thing after another.

Liking the mk 5 with the original bodywork.
Has the headstock got the same style of perimeter frame design as the old FJ Yamaha?

Hey Davo, having the original bodywork to make the molds from will save a shit load of time. Laying up the carbon can get tricky, the first 2 tank shells I made, though structurally sound the top layer of carbon didn't go as planned. I learnt that I had to nip and tuck to keep the weave square on the compound angles. The 3rd, 4th and 5th tank came out good weave wise but I had problems with the resin going cloudy in a couple of places. Didn't show itself till I sprayed the first layer of clear 2 pac :o. I reckon the 6th tank will be perfect with what I know now, too bad there won't be a 6th tank!!

Well I am going for option 4 also,

I was going to add that I didn't like the high up fuel tank look of the others and then Phil went and added his new rendition to fuck me up cos I like that a lot!  Bugger!

Still have to go with 4 though, extremely well proportioned and everything fits together like a production model.

This one!!



 ;D ;D ;D

Now if you used the fuel tank as a ram-air box fed by pipes from the fairing, and had the seat and under seat area as a fuel tank with the battery just above the swingarm pivot you would really have something!
