there is guy on 45s @ college that is very good. Only problem is cost to make parts requires a mold to be made which is an additional cost. But he is good. Builds race boats, race car parts, etc. Google Miffco or John Miffco. He may even be a site member

I may be able to help with this, depends on what you are wanting. I just finished making custom carbon fiber speakers for my bike, lol. If you are wanting to have a few made (same bike), I will make a mold and then make the parts from that so they will all be the same and help with time/cost. If they are all different bikes, it will be a little tougher. Just let myself or lizard know what you are looking for and we can go from there. I can even do the colored carbon fiber/kevlar if you wanted something a little different (just have to order it).

that radio wagon is crazy! Looks awesome, nice work. I've always wanted to learn how to work with those types of composite materials.

Thanks, it def gets a lot of attention, especially when floating down the Guadalupe, lol. Carbon Fiber just takes practice, as long as you know how to fiberglass to begin with and be able to lay it flat.
