Here is an alternative way to produce a tail section for your bikewith a minimal amount of tools and about $50 worth of material.
Materials needed: Epoxy Resin, Fiberglass resin, Fiberglass cloth,Sandpaper in varying grits, Paint and Primer, Painters tape,Aluminum tape or Tin foil (The tape is better and more expensive.Don’t let the Jankeys see it, or they’ll scrap it!), Drop cloth,and Floor wax, Cardboard, and Something to create the overall shapeof your tail. i.e. shapeable foam, clay, the rear section of a gastank, an old KZ tail, a salad bowl, or a mailbox.
Here is the site I used to get a better understanding of what isinvolved. It has pictures and step by steps to build yourselfa killer custom chopper seat pan. http://www.jeffreyphipps.com/seat_pans.htm
Do the glassing neatly, in that I mean, no bumps or air bubbles. This will make your sanding and filling time later lessannoying.
For the true grit hicksters

@John – I haven’t been brewing as of late. The malt bag was onethat I brought home from my days brewing for the Sly Fox. I plan onhaving the home brewery setup by the end of the summer. Then I canheat my house with boiling wort all winter.
