EXTERIOR PART OF SADDLED VEHICLE

EXTERIOR PART OF SADDLED VEHICLE (© European Patent Office)

Object To enable easy visual recognition of an optimum replacement timing in order to rectify a situation in which, even when a lost portion is produced by, for example, flying gravel during traveling in a carbon fiber reinforced plastic used as an exterior part and necessity of replacement arises, the lost portion is hard to be visually recognizable and the optimum replacement timing is hard to be determined. Solving Means A rear frame 20 is formed of a laminate 70 that includes a plurality of carbon fiber layers laminated one on top of another and hardened and integrated with each other by a plastic. A different color layer 37 having a color different from a color of the carbon fiber layers 36 is disposed between the carbon fiber layers 36 in the laminate 70. When a carbon fiber layer 36 on the outside is lost by a piece of flying gravel 60 and a lost portion 38 reaches the different color layer 37, a surface of the different color layer 37 is exposed from the lost portion 38. An exposed portion 39 having the different color can be easily recognized from the outside. The appearance of the exposed portion 39 allows arrival of a replacement time of the rear frame 20 to be recognized.
