I'm excited to see what you come up with on your bike! (overall, not just the fairing)
I was tempted to go the route you did (buy and modify) but was concerned I'd end up buying a whole pile of them before finding one that fit well enough to start with.
Plus I wanted something unique and to fit the styling of the bike as much as I could.
That's what motivated me to try my hand at a design.
I started with a wire and foam creation that I hoped to shape by hand and eventually fiberglass myself.
Ive had far too many issues with that method, so now looking to hand off the design to professionals.
too true about the cost and making molds! I talked to a custom bike shop who guessed he might be able to do it for a few thousand bucks.
I also found a large format 3d printing service who estimated about $800 for my design.
Either way I am still working the model - I had to scrap the first one (picture attached) because I had used a flat plane mesh. If I am going to 3d print it I have to extrude that to give it depth, probably about 5mm or so.
Ive run through at least a half dozen unique designs, the one I am attaching here is my favorite so far, and a model (sorry for the pun) for the one I am working on now. Summer is nutty busy so likely will be months still on the drawing board!
