designing a new brutale bellypan

Ok guys
Just call me a perfectionist or whatever
but I find the oem corse bellypan way to big , hiding way to much off
our beautiful engine and such , also not complete following the lines off our bike aswell , and on the other side there's the tamburini one
wich is way to small, I 've seen one in the flesh on a bike , and it's hardley noticable, and and what a cost !!(starting at295 euro's for each side)
So I decided, with the weather always whorstening this time off year and the bike "garaged",
To give it a shot and make a prototype in clay so later I can take a mould and make myself a nice "homemade" carbon one
This is my ruff prototype, wich needs to dry so I can make minor mods
and then take a negative copy (mould ) off it.
Only rigt side engine at thiis moment , one side at a time chaps
What do you think so far?

Pretty cool project. Looks like a good beginning.

Looks good so far Might I suggest a small "plough" on the front edge?

Nice. I take it you work with this kind of thing? It's not Every day that someone looks at the lowers out there and thinks, not good enough, I believe I'll make my own.

I assume that you can't ride the bike whilst the clay is in situ, how long does it take?

What we've got here, is failure to communicate.

Looks nice, the only thing I might alter would be to get some form of venting to flow air away from the brake master cylinder area.

Hello Ian
No I don't do this for a living , just a hobby, in my daytime job I"m a quality engineer at a hydraulics components firm.
I took a polyester/carbon course in evening classes some time ago
I also made all my carbon on my previous bikes and this one aswell.
Just like to keep busy , and in my garage , I'm away from wife and kids
The bike is garaged at wintertime, but I still ride to work everyday on my 1987 beemer k100, got heated grips, you know...
and agusta's really don"t like the salty roads
cheers
Peter
