Custom heel guards

Just got these in from ebay. Only 40 bucks including shipping. Wish they were powder caoted but for 40 bucks I'll take paint. They look sweet. I'll get some pics up later.

i will. I see those guards that are flat CF and looks cut to shape with drilled holes. It cant be too hard. I was also thinking of making a mold from my stockers and doing a lay up like that. Mabye i should try in fiberglass first.

Paint is gonna chip and fall apart quickly since your heels constantly bang against the guards. I would look into sending them out for powder coat (should not be that expensive)

Actually they are pretty subtle. Not sure where "Bling" comes into it. Now if they were chrome dipped or something. LOL Probably look cool on the bike, dont mind Gas Man, he did not get much sleep between all his whoring last night. LOL

I don't mind. If they were dipped in chrome I wouldn't buy them cuz they'd be the only chrome thing on the bike and stand out like a sore thumb. I like the more subtle mods anyway. I don't go for the real flashy things.
