Carbon Fiber Short Rear Fender

After I finished up with my 3D printed tail Tidy I was looking for a short fender without having chop up stock on and not paying an arm & leg for stamped metal.

I worked in the aerospace industry in my previous life time and use to do come made parts all the time. So I figured I am going to spend $600+ on a steel fender why not make a light weight customized one. I have been developing one for the last couple weeks and just trying to get the molds and finish down. I finally got to something I was generally happy with, but still have a little ways to go.

Wanted to share my progress so far and with plenty more updates to come and possibly even making a bunch of them for you all (with a matching front fender of course).

Let me know what you think, keep in mind this is a final product just yet.

My level of jealousy for modifications people have done has reached a new high. How much weight did you cut off? This is just awesome.

Its probably not all that much, but the fender is basically ounces compared to the stock assembly. I will try to toss it all a weight machine when I am done.

If you could do a matching set of front and rear fenders, that’d be awesome.

Yeah trying to figure out a easy way to 3D scan the fenders.. well generally the bike. Would like to make a few move carbon goodies.
