    Weather has been shit here so i havent got the prototypes onto the bike yet. i have been printing a bunch of test samples to get the printer settings just right. im not sure if there is black TPU on the market but ill look. I was thinking $10 a set plus shipping? two take about an hour to print and its about $1 in materials/electricity. seem fair?

    Forum wont let me upload pictures for some reason.... Here is a OneDrive link to a couple pictures of the prototype on my bike. I'm making a couple cosmetic/function changes to make it a little better but then I should be ready to start production.

    Great! How flexible is it? Is it UV resistant?
    English is not my native language, so please be kind to my mistakes.

    Remember, this is an Italian bike with an Austrian motor, it isn't like the GSXR you use to own...

    this is the prototype in the natural TPU ive been using: https://youtu.be/l43f8ZiqW7c

    from what I can find, the black is of similar SHORE hardness

    I cant find anything on the UV resistance for 3d printer TPU but I did find info on TPU coated fabrics (rain gear) and its listed as UV Resistant...

    Since these are only on their third iteration and my first time "selling" something ive made I feel like I should warrant these for at least a year. so if you cover shipping and they break ill send you a new ones.
