Fancy Pit Bike :)

Made bodywork for the wife's pit bike for her Bday. It turned out pretty good.

It's made from silver Texalium with Dupli-color metalcast spray paint for color.

Made fiberglass molds of the stock parts and vacuum infused the Texalium.


Trimmed and painted.

I wouldn't sell any for the simple fact that it would be adult only. I made this stuff to be very flexible but could break with sharp edges in mx stuff... It's not as flexible as the stock plastic.
