Today I installed my new mirror housings on the DFXL. I designed them using TinkerCad.com and printed them in PLA filament on my Tevo Tarantula 3D printer. After coming off the printer, they were finished with a lot of sanding and a bit of 3M spot putty and painted with color matched spray paint.
The design can be seen in an earlier post. I’ve uploaded the design to Thingiverse.com.
I had a chance to ride with Bill M. (A2naut on BROL) today. Bill is a welder/fabricator and a proud builder/rider of an Alleweder A2. He was testing out his nearly finished head fairing today on the A2. This fairing is a hand formed compound curved piece of aluminum. There aren’t many guys left that can make a piece like this. Check it out…

I’ve been playing with designing and 3D printing small parts for my DFXL I’ve posted one design on Thingiverse. This is a aerodynamic shell for a B&M Cyclestar mirror. Here is the Thingiverse link.
Here is another design that I’ve played with. This is a chain keeper for the front idler on my DFXL. The first iteration of this was just a bit too close to the bottom of the idler so the chain slap was too irritating. The next iteration will be about 1mm longer.
