Here's a link to an old thread discussing this topic. I had gathered up a bunch of pictures including one very curvy Al rallye-type skidplate from Europe:

Loadedagain (aka Stenhouse Racing) assured us it couldn't be built for under $500, so curvy must be difficult as y'all say.

Depending on toolboxes the 690 rfr part can be had for 1/2 that in the aftermarket world. Genuine is another matter altogether!!!

Good luck with this. I always thought there's mileage in using the dead space in front of the rallye guard sump plate skid thingy whatsit bob. Most of us aren't likely to be heaving our 640s over giant rocks but are wanting to keep heavy things like batteries etc down low.

Walter has the right sort of idea - his build quality is top notch. One could have side boxes for protecting the petrol tank in a skid along the tarmac, protecting our poor tootsies when tree stumps are trying to take them out and even store more heavy stuff in.
