Bellypan Progress

A few shots of the bellypan being test-fitted.
Side view -- I was wanting to extend the length of the bellypan, and accommodate the Arrow exhaust as well.

I used a male plug, made out of cardboard to get the basic shape.

As you can see, it is still rough, so a lot of finish work is required.  I am going to use some aircraft-spec products -- microspheres, epoxy resin, and super-fil to try to smooth things out.

As you can see from this moto3 bike, the lower fairing (albeit a full fairing) extends right to the rear wheel.

Benefits for electric bikes may be even more profound!

Stay tuned next week for more sponsorship announcements!
