I made a sample out of a carton box, gave it to a steel shop and had the bash plate bended and welded out of 3mm aluminium. A total cost of R134-65. I think it is a bargain.....

I had a massive vibration on my bike after collecting it from Kawa Centurion.
Turned out to be the bash plate.
The left rear mounting point has disintegrated.
I tried to fix it with epoxy, but I believe I'm in the "new one" market.

I know a couple of guys in the machining business around here, so I think I must have a chat with them to see if a replacement can made for not too much.

That's a neat idea...
I saw on Saturday that my plastic bash plate has a nice hole and crack in it - must have happened when I hit a tree stump at CT...
Out of the gloom a voice said unto me, "Smile and be happy, things could be worse." So I smiled and was happy and behold things did get worse.
