    Quality Carbon Pieces for Gen-2 Tuono's?

    Does anyone have a line on the above? I'm looking for matte carbon, ideally "twill" weave. I'm specifically looking for oil tank / coolant reservoir and other misc small bits, but quite honestly I'm open to see whatever company that makes quality carbon has (frame covers, etc).

    I won't touch MotoComposites, so some other than that company please.

    Thanks!

    I have an original OEM reservoir cover for sale in the US. It is labeled as an AP8179039 but is actually a AP8797415 for a gen 2. An official "Aprilia - Radiator Cowl lower, Carbon, 07-08 Tuono" if it is of any interest.

    No scratches, no marks, no cracks, i'd hasten to say that it's never been fitted.

    On the other side of the pond for you, but Straus Carbon could also be an option;

    http://straus-carbon.com/index.php?r...tegory&path=77

    Had good contact with them and ordered their reproduction Tuono Factory Belly Pan. Can't wait for it to arrive :-)

    They do look like they make quality parts but so far I haven't found any of the companies to do matte carbon, only glossy - especially for frames, swingarms and radiator shrouds.
