Hm. Not bad! I like the aggressive look.

Of course they need to ditch the wood and go with something technical like carbon fiber. And possibly paint it blue, to have a red/white/blue theme perhaps?

While I was thinking about what I'd change in that design... it occurred to me...

You know what I wanna see? A repro of something like the dustbin fairinged racebikes of the '50s, like Geoff Duke used to ride. Not only would they be sporty, they'd have the aerodynamics that a fast electric bike needs.

Um

That moment your seat falls off and you die

I'll pass

Don't get me wrong wood can be strong that's my speciality but that is far from strong
Veneer bent even with resin would not hold up to a motorcycle beating, the constant vibration from the road I have a hard time believing t could last 365 days they way I ride...

I love me some speaker boxes though. They should get into that with the forming they clearly have got down!!! Anyone ever seen a curved t-line would work great with those style of bends

Something like this?

Actually? HELL YEAH. That is exactly what I want.

I've still only read half of his site, but I've seen the fairing he has for sale. I lack the fabrication skills, otherwise I'd already have one in the post.
