Belly pan?
« on: October 11, 2013, 02:37:07 AM »
I think my electra cafe would look cool with a belly pan.  ive made a fiberglass piece before, i'm just wondering if anyone has fashioned a belly pan on their bullet?

Why would you want a fiberglass bellypan. It'd get smashed on the first rock it hit!

One of the joys of the RE Bullet and its AVL variants is the **lack** of modern style bodywork. What might look better on yours is a full sports fairing, but 60's style!

I love mr H's kits. Want that tank but the price is a hard thing to overcome.

I think cafe bikes look sweet.  I wanted to creat my own out of an enfield, so I am.
