So part of what I like to do is push myself to try and do something new. I am learning as I go. Anyhow after a head full of research....and videos I'm off to a start on this. Made one of my plugs for a seat mold. After this step I taped it onto the bike to ensure perfect contour with the frame. I have applied a wax to it and now I'm going to make a hard plaster mold which I fill and pour. My intent when done will be to carbon kevlar skin the top. I will attempt to try and explain why I did things each way as I go.
About 10 years ago one of the guys from PDX made some carbon fiber (or maybe just fiberglass?) bits for their smallframe. He had a front fender and a battery side cowl door on his Smallframe track bike. I think it was '77 50 Special? Maybe the seat base was fiber as well? Anyhow, his Smallframe was fast as fast could be. His was geared lower for the smaller tracks, but still had an incredible top speed. Somewhere around 97 to 100mph on the GPS.
