for the TT crash bar mounts that Edi made, you'd have to drill holes on your frame because i don't think the hole pattern matches any current bikes.

but for SLS parts in general first you generate a 3D file of the part you want made then send it to a rapid prototyping shop that can do stereolithography for a quote. here are some shops in the Socal area.

word of caution though, they ain't cheap. so it would be wise to make sure that your part design will withstand the loads put upon them. there's nothing worse than spending big bucks on a prototype part just to have it break the first time out.

for parts with non-complex shapes and if you're not in a hurry to get them it's probably more cost-effective to have it made on a normal CNC machine.
