I updated my website, now I've got more parts and more information about them, plus new bike pictures. I've decided to really give this a push since ebay just doubled their fees... and my prices are the best out there, and my quality is the best out there! I've taken a look at fiberglass that people bought from others and it's almost always crap, it seems like a lot of people are happy building molds off of crummy parts, and selling fiberglass parts with nicks, scratches, pits, chipped gelcoat... it goes on and on and on, so I'm setting the bar higher here, my glass parts have the best surface finish around, no joke, I went to school for art, so that's what you're buying.
did you fill out your bio?
do you ask more specific questions, as to which marquees and models?
do i act like a dick?
yep, you betcha!
advocate for the injured, disabled, and urinated upon.
surface quality is important.... but structural integrity and lightweight parts are just as important. gelcoated polyester parts are inferior to vaccum bagged or prepreg epoxy parts. build quality parts and leave it to the buyer to paint em.
"t" smackdown. gotta love it.
true, that a vacuum bagged composite part is better and lighter, but you tell me who is going to pay $240 for a part like that... Believe me, I've built those parts with those materials and vacuum bagging with post cure, and NO ONE, not a one, is willing to pay for the quality difference. If you like my parts and want one that is a PCR hi temp epoxy and surface coat, vacuum bagged and postcured at 250, let me know and I'll build you one!!
actually... i would never charge anyone $240 for a vaccum bagged epoxy seat pan... even if it was made in carbon... unless i was smoking crack. you have to remember... on a racebike an item such as a tailsection or a fairing are pretty much a throwaway item. so go ahead and charge $300. one has to be realistic
also ... thanks but no thanks on your offer for building me stuff... i am all set in that dept.
you must be getting a lot better of a deal on materials than I am in that case, between cloth, epoxy, surface coat, peelply, breather, bag and tape, I'm looking at $40-$50, do you have a better supplier?
