Aussie PE plastic's dealer
« on: December 05, 2009, 09:53:25 AM »
Trying to locate a set of sidecovers for PE250/400 in Oz. Checked out VMX unlimited but no listing for PE sidecovers, only RM250/400. Will RM fit?
I would much rather spend my dollars with an Aussie company/importer if possible. Any other leads where I might get these in Oz.
Cheers Quicky.

Quicky prix historic in phillip Island is doing them although at the moment there side covers dont have the little hooking tabs that go under the frame but they are the right shape and look good heres some pics





they are pretty good the only part they dont do is the tank but you could get a tank cover or if it doesnt bother you being a different shade that is just the gelcoat they use I am putting them on my bike today ready for Castella thanks alot Michael. :)

they used to be Scott Bennett up in Tenterfield, but he sold to Mick.
Pretty good stuff.  I have some PE175N bits and they are fine.

Correct. I know of NOBODY in Australia doing PE250T/400T sidecovers in plastic ...
I do know that Scott showed these to me in 2007 and said:

"This was a real accomplishment for us as you can see what we had to work with to make the moulds......they turned out great! We are making them of a new type of material which gives way more flex (you can twist them easily on the ends) and are closely on par with the original plastics."

Glass products must of improved quite a bit since changing ownership. I have one of the earlier produced rear guards, its as hard as nails.

Yes I got the headlight from them it was the first they have done and it looks good and fits well although you have to take your time and iron out little kinks as the healdight I had to take 5mm off one side of the bracket that holds it to the forks as fibreglass doesnt flex as much as plastic these are heaps better than dc the sidecovers had plenty of flex I reckon the rear guard would snap if a wheelie went wrong but that is what originals did and it would be alot less painful if it happened to a guard that you could still buy thanks Michael. :)
