I'm in the process of communicating with a plastics manufacturer... here's my email... have a read and you'll see where I'm going with this.

I currently own a custom motorcycle that has a colour matched frame (has cross member, a single beam welded across underneath for strength, think of the letter “H”). I am looking at the possibility of protecting it from chipping \ scratching. The protection has to be as invisible as possible so that the colour matched frame is still visible. Thick enough to protect but as thin as possible so it isn’t that noticeable, I’m guessing 2mm.

What I am looking for is something that is flexible, clear (almost invisible), with matching clear cable ties, that also has damping properties similar to foam so that debris thrown up from the road has its energy dissipated (i.e. doesn't bounce off) stones \ grit \ dirt \ chips and alike. The tubing would be roughly 3 metres in length. I would cut these into shorter lengths and then cut those length wise to allow me to wrap it around the frame on the underside of the motorcycle. The thinner the material the better but I would imagine there will be a trade off between protection and aesthetics. There is a similar idea with hydraulic brake lines on motorcycles using something called clear coat which is used to kept the stainless layered cables clean and shiny. However, I believe what I am proposing, for the frame, is not something available on the market.

Can you advise and \ or assist ?

they already make this stuff, its called Clear Bra. Most high end cars here in the states use it on the front ends to stop rock chips and the like from beating the hell out of the front end. Some lower end cars are using it on the sides where fender flares stick out and get beat up by road debris.

I just had my car repainted last year, and was looking into having this done to my car, but i ended up thinking that it was too costly. You can also look into your local sign shop and asking them for a roll of clear vinyl. You can cut off what you want or need, and just apply. When it gets beat up, just peel off and reapply more.
