It's the cool ribbed stuff, just like the drawer full I threw away a few years back. I must say my mind too is boggled. I thought the stuff was kinda neat but the ribbing deteriorated easily. I have a Rudge with this housing so I guess if I ever want to replace the housing I'll have to pay more than I did for the whole bike.

If you think that's odd you should read http://www.westpress.co.uk/displayNode.jsp?nodeId=84282&command=displayContent&sourceNode=84281&contentPK=2548775 And this will add to todays to pic about wether weight matters. . . in this case it does. ciao, Brandon"monkeyman"Ives SB, CA --
