Anyone here made their own cafe rear cowl? I have a seat pan and a plastic tank cover from a CBR600 that I'm going to use as the basic shape. I'm thinking I can make a fiberglass reverse for a mold out of the tank cover, then the cowl itself from that.

Anyone with experience here?

There are a couple of pics of bikes with cafe style tails in the Interesting Seca II's thread:

The red one shows how he made his over on Sport-Touring.net. Notice his rear turn signals located in the ends of the frame rails?!
