Tromex body work?

Have any of you guys out there that race hear of them? i have seen them on Ebay and i have talked to them through e-mail. i was wondering if anyone has tried them on their bike by any chance. i'm looking for my R6 and they seem pretty decent. almost like a cheetah rip off. it's a fiber glass, carbon fiber, fiberglass body design. here is a pic too.

I found them on ebay as well awhile back and emailed them. The guy even went and dug out the bodywork for my bike and took individual pics and sent them to me. I haven't been able to find any feedback either about them. Cheap stuff though!

I talked to a guy at hypercycle of texas in Dallas who said they race them and they hold up as well as the $600-$800 stuff. But I have no personal experience.
They have a website www.hypercycleoftexas.com.
Where on Ebay did you see this stuff? I looked and couldnt find Tromex anywhere.

ive painted and mounted some off brand plastics before. just make sure the seller rating is high and get some with no holes pre-drilled. you get what you paid for but firberglas is VERY easy to reinforce or repair.

either $450 for cheap race glass or $2k for street plastic.

anything is better than nothing. if you want to get some sharskinz, hotbodies, etc and not worry about getting bad plastics, go for it. i didnt becasue i could not afford $800.

I'd bet those are the same guys who used to sell under the brnd A-kit which became Maddog race glass. Good stuff in my opinion, I've had two sets for two different bikes and both fit better than the Hotbodies I've had. With most race glass it's about taking your time, and fitting it proberly for the application. I usually needed to move the upper a bit higher for clip-on clearance. Again i can't stress the importance of taking your time, measure thrice, drill once.........................

Never heard of them, but in my experience, with race bodywork mostly you get what you pay for. Fit and finish are obviously key points going in, but how well the bodywork holds up in a crash / how repairable is it, is just as important.

My 2 cents.
