Zero Gravity also makes some for a Suzuki GSXR 750 (06-07) in a S.W.A.T. or Double Bubble style.

We have to be careful here, I found a design for a Honda that on line looked perfect. When I went to the Honda shop it was 5" by maybe 7"......

^^^you can probably get somewhat of an idea to size by looking up the bike or just looking at the bolt hole on the windscreen. For instance that grey one looks tiny...and is different from that smoked one. Look at the bolt pattern.

if you're looking for a bigger windscreen, look at the 96-2000 body style GSXR's
back then, the bikes actually had curves...


Puig double bubble for example

What is the width of the hood section and the height of the speedo? - never mind, I have some trial stuff coming to Lex for test fitting (which I can return for credit if it doesn't work)

Which is two of these Zero Gravity Double Bubble (made for the Ducati 996) in dark smoke - any bets on fitment? Too small? Not wide enough? Look out of place? We'll soon see -

Sorry Marty, I've been busy building legos with my boy (and I thought exo cars were tough)
Do you still need the measurements or just see when they get here?
Merry Christmas all!!!!

Don't need measurements - samples being sent will serve the purpose

Merry Christmas

I'm kinda thinking (hoping) to leave the open area at the bottom so you can run a GTech pro, like the SS or similar.....So you (read I) can see what this beast can do

BTW, I updated my old WWW.HubGarage.com account in hopes of reaching some of the hot rod crowd with the V8.
I'll keep a log of all the cars there as well.
It's free, has NO spam but you do have to sign up.
It's listed under Pipe Dreams Prototypes and Fab garage.

Both the SS and the RR are 4.25" x 2" x 2". The RR adds lap time section analysis.

I would love to have the money for one of those...but I don't think my fat ass would fit in it.

Rebuilt (marine grade grease) and modded to fit the TR in both 5 and 6 speed.
I have a cool Idea for reverse lock out but Ill show you later Marty once I mock it up.
Hint: It locks out reverse unless it sees the brake lights

Meifert,
The TR was built for AMERICAN drivers! Its not as small inside as most exo's.
This guy is 6'2" sitting strait up.
The green seats you see on the prototype are LARGE and the sides don't touch like other exo cars.
The leg and foot room is massive for a car this size...(Size 14 shoe shown).
The pedals, shifter and seats can all be moved as they are all on a rail system (see last pic).
and last but not least I'm not that expensive

I'm 5"10", 220lbs with a 48" chest and there is p-l-e-n-t-y of room for a 54" chest. Now if you have a 50" gut too, well . . .

Your attention to detail and level of craftsmanship still bewilders me. I am no stranger to having custom cars built, having had several shops do work for me over the years (including Riddler winning shops).

Thank you

Seriously Thank you Marty for the opportunity!
The area of that section is 5.5" wide at the lowest part and up to 6" tall so there is room for the unit and the 12v plugs.
