There's a couple of cheap knock off JUNK replicas that aren't even close to the same thing. I don't care what color as long as it's not fucked up. Chances are I will have it molded and made from carbon anyway. Just need the part for a mold to be pulled. .............. ..............

Wait didn't we go through this a while back. I though I found you one but it was to expensive. Like a hundred eighty bucks. http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j...34495766,d.dmo

Dude you didn't find one.... Hard Racing is well documented for saying they have shit they don't have.... I actually ordered the damn thing from them and got a phone call saying sorry we no longer have that and can't get it.... I have called Targa and offered to buy a DOZEN of them if they would just make another batch and they REFUSED ! There are NONE NEW LEFT ON PLANET EARTH! Hence why I'm still looking..... Find one I'll buy it and pay you for finding it. Can't beat that

if you find a bike but need plastics , I have a sharkskin set for the front in green. Its the piece that has headlight openings, and I have the new in box unpainted belly pan that mates up to it.
I have a green tail section also w pass seat or with the cover shown above. I need to move this stuff so let me know. Project bike can mean anything so im just putting it out there if you find a decent one but w body damage.

The guy that bought my parts guy brother's bike and Dean's old turbo kit I think his name was CookMaster had one but he stopped coming on the site a few years back. I have honestly been flipping over ever stone for the last couple of years looking for one with zero luck

Yeah I remember them not being nearly as popular / they were a bit pricey. I still kinda want one myself because they are the best looking and sleek...really makes the tail look much slimmer. But I decided the OEM cowl looked good enough for me but I had my body/paint guy fill in the holes that hold the rubber pad on...much better sleek on the front instead of that big chunk of rubber.

Figured I'd throw that link up for you though just in case. Good luck to you

Dude I got several tails including a Carbon / Kevlar like this bike ................. In fact I got all the special parts like this bike is built from including the tank.. But race tails don't offer under the tail storage and I like to have a little room for stuff when out on a street ride. I still like the OEM tail with the proper seat cowl.. I hated the OEM cowl back in the day and still hate them today..
