I prefer metal, that's why the Ambassador is my favorite motorcycle. 46 yrs. old now and it hasn't rusted away. ;) The MZ Silver Star has metal tank, sidecovers, fenders, seat pan, rims, heavy original muffler, an enclosed chain and 100 lbs. of Rotax, yet still only weighs 350 lbs. Plastic - bah, humbug...
I hate chrome plated plastic, that stuff just sucks! I say this as I look at the bubbling .peeling chrome plastic on the front grill of my F-150, and the bubbling ,peeling chrome plastic on the trunk trim on my Goldwing. You cant do anything with that crap once it starts to go.Plastics also dont do well in this Arizona sun, it really eats em up. Give me metal any time over plastic. Oh, and dont get me started on Italian, and Swedish plastic( Volvo).....Well, I guess Italians can make decent plastics, like Acerbis stuff.Someone here stated"Real motorcycles are not made of plastic" I agree! ;DRick.
My MZ 660 Tour has plastic tank, side panels, fenders, chain cover and weighs about 400#. Best handling bike I've ever ridden and get's 65 mpg. :BEER: Never heard of a polyester mite. ???My maxi-scooters are covered w/plastic and none of them are light. Can't imagine what they'd weigh w/o plastic. ~;
Well, that blows your hypothesis of "plastic makes your MC lighter" out of the water, then doesn't it? ;) ;D
Whatever happened to those 305cc Honda Dreams with the pink plastic fenders.How we sneered at those back in the 60s ???
