    Green light to the Oracig SL

    Hi everyone.

    Oracing have gave me green light to the Oracing SL.
    The name of SL, is just Super Light.
    The complet weight, incluide everything (sideguards, brakes, footrest and plate, seat & back uphostery, 4 "softroll casters, rear wheels, pushrims&tires) the estimate weight is between 16-17 lbs.
    I hope it will see the sun this summer.

    Just for give a bit of colour to the thread, here`s the last hadbike, fame made with hidroformed tubes.

    Congrats totoL1. As always, we will be interested in hearing all about it. Wow, 16-17 lbs. sounds great.
    Partner of an incredible stroke survivor. Limitations: hemiparesis and neglect (functional paralysis and complete lack of awareness on one side). Equipment: TiLite ZRA 2 and 2GX, Spinergy ZX-1, RioMobility Firefly. Knowledge: relative newbie for high-level equipment (2012), but willing to try to help others who are new with similar limitations (definitely not a guru, but inquisitive).

    With rear wheels installed, that weight is impressive.
    I have had periodic paralysis all my life. I lost my ability to walk in 2011 beginning with a spinal block, which was used for a hip fracture caused by periodic paralysis.

    Yeah it is!

    Lowest I've gotten with my BTMg is 18, but that included cushion. No brakes or side guards, though. Just frame, wheels, upholstery, and cushion. (15x16x16x19 frame size)

    The weight incluide; painted frame, upholstery seat ( i will install it just for take the pic of the weight, but i will use CF seat) brakes, fendered sideguards, footrest, softroll disc CF casters and katanas rear wheels, but no cushion.

    Probably this is the last metal chair i wil do, this summer I'm going to do a crash course to learn about how to do carbon fiber 3D molds, et..
    The only carbon fiber chair good out there in the market is the panthera, but only you can choose the width of the seat and backrest height.
    I want to do a custom CF wheelchair, where the customer could choose all measurements like Oracing, certainly not going to be cheap.

    I will do frames and send it to Oracing to get finished with uphosthery, inside stem fork barrel, etc.
