After coming home from Scarborough yesterday. This was waiting for me.





It's a lovely piece of craftmanship.

If anybody would like one of these for their bike. Then get hold of Jay762. big grin

It was Stig.

Unfortunately for some reason they can't make them. It's been that long since we asked that I can't remember why.

The last time I heard from Jay he was investigating in making them with a 3D printer, but not heard anymore about it as yet.

It's a shame the company who made the chain guard can't do them because they would look brilliant. cry baby

I always thought these eastern orientals were good at copying things. laugh

Yup it was piecing together the in-fills to make a good enough version to make a mould with.

I have an intact left hand side but need a right, have spoken with a company about building a 3D model I can then use to get a mould made. Challenge is they would also like to make the infills and their prices are not quite as good as the other chaps.

So unfortunately still a work in progress

unless someone has an intact right had side I can buy / borrow to get the scan completed?

Can't they just do a mirror image of the one you've got?

Its a possibility - would have to remove the hole for the reserve switch - it also assumes yamaha in the eighties had that degree of symmetry
