    A rash of rear end failures (motor guards, wheelie bars...) inspired me to make this. TBR inspired but out of carbon and about 10mm longer to double as a wheelie bar. The stainless rivets are to prevent road rash which happens quick otherwise! It is strong enough to stand on no problem. More goodies on the way when I find time.

    :cool:

    Very, cool!
    How heavy is it, compared to the tbr bumper? I only ask because, the tbr is pretty heavy.
    Thanks in advance....

    Kind of. It's about twice as much as the wheelie bar which is 45g. Bomb proof was the plan so weight was not much of a priority.
