Wasn`t planning on building something from a rice burner, but for that huge amount of money I couldn`t resist... (would you !)

Didn`t stay like that for long of cource...

found a `78 Z650 fuel tank for 50 bucks, it`s plug&play at the front, just need to fab something to maintain the other end...

I`ve build a stainless "copy" and that`s gona be the actual base for the foam and "leather" so you`ll see the board from behind without any screw, staple or whatnot, it`s gona be like this

Had some brass leftovers, so I did my seat logo (gonna be stitched at the rear)
just played with my usual acids... didn`t react like I expected, with aluminum it`s slower but the bitten parts are black...

Nice! Couple of questions: What was/is the headlight cover? And do you have any specifics regarding how you go about the acid etching (if that's what it's called)? I like what you did to the forks. :clap for you:

The fairing started in life as a 7$ Ikea serving bowl :cool:

It is indeed called acid etching.

you`ll need:

2 parts of water
1 part of chlorhydric acid
1 part of hydrogen peroxide

(put it in a glass or plastic container IN THAT ORDER !! )

Everything that`s not protected by plastic or ink will be etched

put your sticker on your aluminum or brass support

put your part in the acid solution and walk away (toxic fumes)

after 5 minutes or so you already have a nice engraving, to have as much bitten away as the parts above take 25/30 minutes...
