For Sale & Wanted / Re: FZ1 Lennon's Mirror Eliminators
« on: 18 May 2019, 04:54:41 PM »
I've got two threads to look thru:


http://www.yamahafz1oa.com/forum/showthread.php?t=146853


http://www.yamahafz1oa.com/forum/showthread.php?t=146337


and some photos of the process: Design worked with a Romer 3d scanner, and designed in Solidworks 2019. Printed using Shapeways, in either New York, or Eindhoven Netherlands...


Cheers.


scanned a fairing in 3d



draw on top of the scan data to make the mirror delete plate



finish up the concept, and order half a dozen different prints over the next six months...



and end up with these:



I just released them for sale in the US a little over a month ago, and have gotten good feedback so far. One customer paint matched his set, and it turned out looking nice.








Let me know if anyone has any questions.  :D


Cheers

For Sale & Wanted / FZ1 Lennon's Mirror Eliminators
« on: 18 May 2019, 04:40:38 PM »
Morning - I made my first few posts in the 'Introduction' forum, and wanted to share these too.


My name is Mark Lennon, and I'm a packaging designer by trade. I also happen to love our fazers. This past year, I picked up a '09 faired FZ1, and began designing my own mirror block off plates. Over the past 8 months or so....I've gotten them to a point where I'm happy, and have began selling them online thru a 3d print house called Shapeways.


I've got a thread made over on the US forum (FZ1OA) but thought it'd be in my interest to reach out over here too. I didn't see any vendor forums or anything, so if a moderator says this isn't the right spot to post, please let me know.


I'll post a few photos below. Some of the 3d design process, some printed parts, and some parts other users have ordered, and painted...


Cheers. Mark

Introduction / Re: FZS1000Fazer & FZ1 guy, stateside

Hi Jointbreaker and welcome to the forum......thats one of the best introductions I have seen on here , great pics aswell   :thumbup


Cheers. Thanks for the welcome.


Welcome 🍻 Gotta say the wheels on that Gen 2 are Stunning!! Im guessing they are aftermarket and not from another bike, any idea which ones they are?


I bought the Gen2 mostly how it sits. The wheels are Carrozzeria forged wheels, anodized in "Wine Red." I need to finish my touches on this bike, and get better pictures. :)


Cheers.

and the "new to me" bike








When I bought this bike, I didn't really care for any of the options available for covering up the mirror holes in the fairing...So I designed my own.


I'll add more info about those in the future, but just wanted to say hey. Love these bikes, and can't picture myself riding anything else right now. I spent a heck of a lotta money on a vstar 1100, which I think may be called Dragstar's across the pond...


Here's all three bikes together. I'm lucky and have a woman in my life that's ok with this obsession. :P hah.

Introduction / FZS1000Fazer & FZ1 guy, stateside

Just wanted to introduce myself to the forum. I live in the USA, an hour west of Chicago Illinois. I'm a cruiser guy that's since been converted to the Fazer life. :)


I started out with a FZS1000 back in 2014, in the fastest blue/black combination. It came with a Givi rear rack and box. I've since done a few things to it: 08R1 forks, the rest of the Givi luggage racks, retrofitted HID projectors in the stock headlights, bar end mirrors, a couple different seats, tank grip pads, Devilsyam frame plugs...that sort of thing.


This past winter, I ended up with a FZ1 as well, with the retro graphics bodykit. It's got a full Ivans package w/PCV, Mivv exhaust with gutted stock header. Soon to replace that with an Arrow header I have in the garage. Speedscreen, with more bar end mirrors, and a few other goodies on that bike too.


I'll share a few photos below.
