Bob, If, for example, you want to buy a CF sissy bar and open faced pi55pot to make you look cool on your 80's GS1100L, then they'll probably cost more than the standard fayre. If you're developing a GP motorbike however, choosing to utilise CF composite technology to create the frame means that, on the one hand, one can mould the piece into the desired form without incurring enormous equipment and tooling costs and, on the other hand, varying levels of rigidity and torsional characteristics can be attained simply by altering the type, the number and the directional orientation of the carbon fibres, using the same equipment. Stick to the ball-pein pal, they do 'em with CF handles now..
