Bulletproof skidplate for 990!

Received my new skidplate from Weld86 the other day and installed it with no problems. Charlie is selling them in Vendors - he built one for himself and a friend and a dozen more to recoup material costs, (edit: I think he is now in full production, the dozen was an initial run). Here is the link:

Lots of good pix there so I won't add mine here.
I am very impressed with his work and the welds are things of beauty. They are made of tough alloy (5052? Cannot recall...) 1/4" plate. If you hit this hard enough to bend it you may be more concerned with your ER bill than your sump. Makes many of the other brands look like something you would wrap candy in.

Charlie was doing a deal with throwing in a sidestand relocator that appears to be very strong too (haven't installed it to say for sure, but apparently made of the same material).

My only association with Charlie is as a very satisfied customer.
