Default Re: leather and Motorized bicycles

So if I'm guessing right you started out with some kind of Styrofoam (what kind) and shaped it with a sureforrm scraper, then started laying on the fiberglass cloth and glass in layers. What made the original foam disappear? Some kind of solvent? Then did the cutout with maybe a hacksaw blade. Then built up the cushioning with some kind of closed cell foam and attached it with contact cement maybe? Just guessing... please correct so we know how you went about it. Well done, sir!
Someday when I grow up I will probably lose interest in toys with wheels, but until then...
