    When the site is full of folks who are happy to spend hundreds of pounds on designer plastic mudgaurds somone who looks to come up with something themselves to solve a problem is to be commended in my view. So good on you Chris.

    I think it makes the bike look like a tool that's actually used rather than a pristine showroom model that gets taken out on dry runs only.

    But then, I like RatBikes too!!

    So...where do those fibreglass cockpit infills you made fit into that then which admitedly were not cheap but I do appreciate the manhours you put into making them.

    I agree. The oilheads and predecessors were certainly intended to be functional rather than posing machines....not so sure that the case for the newer ones.

    I have no idea what point you're trying to make - but suspect you don't either

    Lighten up - I happen to think it looks like a dog's breakfast, but I doubt my view is causing anyone to lose sleep...

    That'll be because I'm not trying to make a point, I'm asking a question.

    Allow me to rephrase for clarity. Do you think the people who bought your cockpit infills are cheap?

    What I'm try to discern is whether you think anyone who makes things rather than buy proprietary items for their bike is cheap

    No - just something that looks cheap and nasty. Do you remember the chap who made his own tobinators, using bits of Meccano? It never ceases to amaze me that people will spend thousands on a bike and then fit something that looks like it was made in the back streets of the fourth largest city in Lesotho...
