    fuel ex skid plate

    so tonight i was sitting around in the shop and picked up a piece of aluminum, so i decided i was gonna make a skit plate for my 08 trek ex-7 as bashing rocks off the new to me, and barely ridden by previous owner, bike doesnt sound like too much fun, all in all i think it came out good so far, although i still gotta put holes to mount it to the water bottle cage, and i gotta get some rubber pads so it wont scratch the frame, my cameras dead atm and i cant find the cable so ill post pics a little later

    mine wraps around the back of the bb, around halfway up the back, im thinking about making a better version with a sheet of hdpe, and also a rear fender out of hdpe also, that will start at the bottom linkage,and come around the top maybe a quarter way around, and if i could find a way to mount it ive been thinking of making a bb mount bashgaurd out of thick hdpe that wouldnt rotate and just so rocks slide off
