The po lost it he said. when i bought the trike from him it was gone. i always strap mine. but yes i want one for a mold but i will buy one if the price is right or borrow your spare and send you 2 back that i make for your trouble. keep your badge and script if i borrow if your selling leave them on there. thanks rider let me know.

I will sell these to anybody on this site for 20 bucks each unpainted if they turn out nice.. only if you need one i don't want them resold for big bucks. the reason i'm doing this is to help riders replace their lost plastic without breaking the bank and not others pad their pockets. sorry but i feel strongly about this.

Are you expecting to get similar strength and quality from you molded product? I searched for a very long time to get a front lower LH cowl without fog light for my Interstate. Top quality these run better then $280. Finally I found one on ebay for <$80 in great shape. There seems to be a shortage for this item as well.

They will be fiberglass and should be much stronger. i can make any of it if i have one to mold by. your avatar looks just like my black trike before i started on it.

Skoto Read your post on side covers.If they work i need one for battery side. When i looked on internet (every page I could find) I couldnt belive the price on them. Double and triple the price of any of the other tupperwhere covers. Momma said no on buying some because of the price is too high for us to get any. She only gets to work two days a week and i cant work. Had three operations on my back and doc said no more for me. So if they work out would you let me know please. I would greatly apprectate it so much. Mark

Add-On does make GL1500 side covers, either unfinished plain white or chrome. Certainly far cheaper than OEM. These are ABS plastic though, like the original.

Mine will be fiberglass and very strong much stronger than the oem product. they will be cheaper than anything you can buy anywhere. you'll just have to have them painted. will have to attach the studs that hold them on and will just have to test them out on mine to see how they hold up. It is best to attach them with a piece of light cable you can get at Lowes cheap precaution considering the expense of the part.

I can also paint these but at an extra cost and want guarantee the match due to the age of most bikes. And prices will vary due to price of paints.

latweety61 i'll let everyone know as soon as i start making them. i'll post it on here. still wanting on the covers from a member.

And i know what you mean on operations. I have had 4 back surgeries, A brain aneurysm, prostate cancer with my prostate being removed. let me see what else.
But i'm blessed and able to do all most anything i did before, just can't do it for as long as i once did. God is good All the time.

If you still need a cover let me know and PM address to ship to, I can send the one from the 88. It only has a minor crack. Do you want both or just battery side?

Anything else you might want to mold also let me know. 88 is just sitting for now anyway. Pocket doors for under the rear speakers might be nice. People loose those allot too. I need one for the left side on 88

Iwould be interested to see what you sell yours for.. I gave up bothering as i was told that i was too expensive. So i guessed owners were happy to pay the $227.00 for a left side Cover for a GL1200....

What would you be making yours of? Mine were Fibre glass with reinforced mounting posts.. But only came in a white gel coat finish. I have also recently bought myself a Vacuum forming machine too.. So will be looking at doing HIPS and ABS version of my range of replicas that i produce.

I have a chrome aftermarket if that will help you make the mold. The right stock one blew off back three years ago so a friend bought the chrome set for me.

Chromo is sending me one but his dad died so it's in a holding pattern. the chrome one will work fine if you don't mind me using it.
