Streamlined Shell Project

Dave Krafft, Lance Oberg and Jon Nygren have been working on molded plastic streamlined shells. Brought a half, but it's got some damage. First one wasn't hot enough, so it didn't mold. Second was too hot, and slammed into side of mold, then mold failed before they could do a third try. Weighs 7-8 lbs per side in molded plastic. If built from fiberglass, weight would be 10-12 lbs per side. Got about 5-600 hours into it so far (since first of year). Should fit on just about any style of bike.
