It looks like it modeled after a Bimota Tesi

I know.. it's a little "old school" but it has a bunch of nice vents and molds in it... AND it covers the rear subframe tastefully

I think it's modeled after this Honda though

Hmmm... i wonder if that person is producing it or if someone else could make that body.... I really like it... especially from that angle...


I would like to see it from the front though... some of those old bodies are a little too round in front for me (with the two headlights side by side)

I like how they have the frame molded into the body, definitely supposed to be a VFR 750.

that is definately the body... I still like it...

on my bike with the front lowered ...that body would look badass


whoever made the one in the pic I posted did a great job of molding it!


I need new plastics is a bad way.... and I'm NOT going to spend another 90 for an NF or PMT until they get theri quality up.... I should have just spent the $70 for the bodies from Exstreme... but he had a minimum order of 3


they hold up great though..(barring the issues Allan and a few other had in the UK)


Thunder Tiger is taking too long releasing the Desmosedici bodywork separately


if someone could help me out with the language I think I could get it figured out: http://www.rcgalleri.dk/html/gal_visbil.asp?ID=593

Daniele at Exstreme replaced all the bodies that I had and there have been no problems with the replacements.He did in fact send an extra set because of the problems with the first ones.Thommos carbon look one is also still going strong as well.

It's a real pity the extortionate postage from Italy kills everything,or I think we'd see more stuff comming from there.

true... if he sold the bodies for what they were worth... shipping outstanding... I'd get a couple of them... I really like the fit and the look a lot... and the lexan is nice and thick


Bruce?... any word on carrying those bodies (Exstreme's)?
