Wasn't having much luck finding a Vendor in USA that could/would work with us.
Asked a friend in Eu to contact the Supplier to see if they can/will work with us, and to see if they have a representative in the USA.

More later.

Sorry Ted. But a 2014 red and 2015 green isn't as fast as a 09 red. The 09 doesn't have a speed limiter.  ;)

No luck.

If I build a steel fender as a form, do we have someone here that can reproduce it in carbon fiber???

Ok then how would you want it sized, I mean would it be the outside dimension or the inside dimension or just actual size??? I guess what I'm asking is would it be the mold or would you just build the mold from it?
I'm pretty sure I could provide a nice prototype out of steel, and then provide mounting brackets and Hardware most likely from stainless.

Since the metal fender would be the proto or the plug, the outside of it would create the "finushed"'side of the mold.  Yes, I would pull the mold from your plug.  Since the Carbon and the steel wouldn't share dimensions except the outer surface that would be the surface to perfect for fit and appearance.  I would then do any clean up and prep and pull a mold from that. Since c.f. Is the desired final material, I would want to extend the part on all sides by at least an inch and a half as to create a mold with a good sized flange so that the part could be made by vacuum infusion. Its really the only good way for carbon to hand lay a part.  Now prepreg and an autoclav would be even better, but THAT I don't have.  Infusion yields very high percentage good parts so it is the best method for me.

I think I would also want to finish the inside of the part with flexible coating to repel rock damage that could create spider or star cracks through the part. Then paint the outside with a couple of coats of a UV clear to make the resin hold up better/longer.

All, sam_uk has talked to Ian at Skidmarx.
Ian is willing to give us a discount, but we have a problem.
   below is what he offered.....

Individual shipping to USA would be approx £55 gbp {approx. $62} with the hugger at £94.95 gbp. {approx. $108}
    He is willing to  offer 10% off the hugger for ten units and 15% for 15 units


The problem is Skidmarx doesn't have a US representative.
 So,,,  shipping and handling the transactions is a problem..
     Not sure how we would pay for these with individual charge cards?
     Bulk shipping of all the fenders to 1 location and then re-distribute would save a huge amount on shipping costs..

ie; We need someone with Charge card handling capabilities.
     We need someone to receive all the fenders in bulk and re-ship to each of you.

Any idea's??

Ride safe, Ted

An idea.If someone is willing to ship them on and has paypal you could collect the 10 or 15 payments that way then make the 1 payment to Skidmarx .If they dont want the hassle of reshipping the buyer could arrange collection and delivery through a postal service. Just an idea. :great:

I'd buy 10 units and have them shipped here in Colorado. It's not that much ($1080 US -10% or less plus $300 shipping?).
Right?
Any idea of 10 unit shipping to CO? Bueller?...Bueller?... Anyone?
I would accept payment from committed COG members by money-order only but that implied warranty, damaged in shipping as one example is a mess so I'm not feeling that idea.


I'd buy one for $158 delivered if I could.

There are several US manufacturers who have 190-17" rear huggers in stock for other bikes. They are not inexpensive but they are cheaper shipping than buying one from the UK.
Has anyone ever modified an existing fender from another mfr?
Preston Petty Products has some nice plastic fenders.

Is this ZG inner hugger attached at two points only, left and right?
The two points being the aft end of the torque rods?
