Tail tidy options
« on: August 28, 2017, 09:31:09 pm »
Destroyed my new bike's tail tidy on my first proper ride on it. Metal plate got caught on the 18" rear and bent badly. Indicators destroyed.
Anyone with suggestions? Custom made or buy ready made?

I have one documented here somewhere using the OEM tail, just shortened.

Andre de Klerk, hier in ons dorp, kan enigiets in alu en stainless vir jou maak. Sy werk is uiters netjies.

Baie vindingryk, en kan op 'n bestaande ontwerp verbeter.

Hy het my nog nooit teleurgestel nie.

Hoekom breek jy al jou bikes Noneking? Dit lyk of daai nuwe HP2 baie vining is! Sterkte met die herstel proses!

Ek het een soos die wat Jaco van praat. Myne is SS. Sal foto post vanaand. Jy kan hom maar laat maak :thumleft: Lyk goed op hulle sterte ;)

Edit. Nou dat ek die foto hierbo kyk... Lyk min of meer dieselfde

Edit edit.  Het intussen die bracket onder die 2 covers reggebuig en verstek. Die panele lyn mooi op met die lig nou :deal: ;)

Ek dink die tail tidy gaan nogsteeds ń probleem wees met 18" agterwiel. Gasn hom dalk effe korter mask sodat hy nie wiel kan vang nie

Ai ek wens ek het geweet. Hy is nie vinniger as die res, maar daai suspensie mask dat die fiets vinniger en harder gery kan word

Don't make it from stainless, it will be too heavy and crack your sub-frame .
