So onward with a sheet of 24 gauge steel...... Marked 12x5 inches. When I make things from scratch, I always try to.....uhhhhmmmm... make it from scratch, as not to "reform" others products. That keeps me in the clear, if I ever sell any parts. Copyright laws allows you to make sets for your self, but once you sell further copies, you open yourself up for exposure.

Cut to shape.....

Bend it on a SS tube, and installed, and drilled the holes, while fit the abs sensor........ Acceptable.....?????

These will then serve as templates, for a Carbon Fiber mould...... Should be short work......
This is a great idea. If you make them with the brake line pinch clamp tabs molded into the upper part of the gaurds...both left and right....I would gladly get in line to purchase a set.

I currently run an MX style brake lines and had to screw in the pinch clamp on the right fork. But I would much prefer to have the tab molded in like all the left fork gaurds.
