thanks for asking
whatever happens it will have to be inexpensive

it costs a lot for infusion tooling and the high quality materials like lightweight carbon fiber and hardfaced lexan
it will be super lightweight so the best method will be carbon infusion
regular fiberglass is too heavy and weak

since I will be making one for myself, which requires making a mold to do it hi-tech I may as well sell a few to recoup material costs

I am thinking I can do it for around $500 a peice or less (call me crazy)
but shaping and finishing will be about 10 hours at least so it will be tough to make a profit
several peices, front .back and windsheild
but thats still a long way out, I still have weeks of shaping to do before even making the mold

the ride is unbelievable

I am spoiled now ,

I cant even picture myself going on a long ride any more without this , it takes all the misery out of the superslab , I could actually even hear an I-pod now while riding if I wanted
and the miles go by so much quicker , gliding along instead of pushing through

and the best part is , just push it down when I hit a dirt road and its out of the way more than the stock posickle stick windscreen
from a cloud of dust we race, then into the dust we return, across the finish line
