Have you got the facilities to do this then? What about the connections?

There is nothing that can't be reproduced, it's just a case of how much, batches bring the cost down.

I'm about to make a new Mantis Pro-floater, the only difference will be i'll be doing mine in 7005 and not 6061.

Steel frames like Fat Chances are really easy to copy, you'd never know the difference.

I know a guy who'll do full carbon frames, in the style of the Storck Organic, in batches of 20 for £1200 each, possibly cheaper with more orders.

It's just a case of wether you can live with a copy, or must have the real thing.

I understand the logistics, thankyou.

Was merely wondering whether Mike had the facilities to do it himself, or was simply suggesting that it could be should someone else have the needed bits.

I personally wouldn't have a clue where to start looking for the required materials, wouldn't know how to put them together had I known, and certainly haven't the equipment...
