FS: Stainless Steel chain guards - NOW SHIPPING!
« on: November 04, 2011, 08:33:54 PM »


05/16/2013: I have another 20 in stock

They're here!
Nice, thick stainless steel. This is the raw material - you can buff it to a high gloss, rub it for a dull finish, run over it with 400 grit for a matt finish or leave as is.
The stainless steel is high grade - the same grade as used for stuff you eat off of.
These are the same height as stock so those with Airbrush's rear hugger: just drill your two holes and you're ready to go. The fit is the same (I have his huggers on all my bikes so I made sure of that  :icon_lol: )

(You may see it on ebay - I charge more on ebay. GStwin'rs get it cheaper here!)

$30 +$15 p&h, $25 p&h to Canada. Outside North America $35 postage. Multiple orders get discount on shipping.

You may pat through my paypal:    patrickpaypal   at   cdesoftware    dot     com

Include your address and what it is for in your paypal payment.

My friend in the bowling business that makes automatic scoring systems. He was going to make rear seat cowlings last year - but no one showed any interest.

I know people are interested in the chain guards because of the comments I've had on mine. So I know these should sellout fast.

I just spoke with him before I made the first posting. He's finishing the final drawing now. Once I approve the  design,  I'll also have exact cost and can take orders. He will make an initial run of 10 (more if enough orders). I'm hoping next week I'll have 10 in hand.

Right now.
I MIGHT have him do a few with black powder since Suzi has a black frame.
What were you interested in?

As bare stainless steel, it would take paint very well. I'll ask about powder when I approve the design next week.

Right. They will be clean, bare stainless steel. I will have to ask the price for powder coating.
You can polish or dull to suit your needs. Paint of you want or just clear coat so it stays cleaner.

powder coating aluminium isnt hard. clean it and heat it up to 400 to let it outgas first and then hit it with the powder and cook it.

I know its easy. Just how much he would charge to do it. Better if 10 were coated at the same time. Setup is the time - get out gun, powder, etc.
Its just what he'd charge to add that on. If he was doing some other work in black, then probably not much at all because he'd already be set up for it.
I have a powder coat system - haven't used it yet. One of the new toys for the bike cave I haven't used yet. I might try a set of OEM clip-ons and see how they come out. Got Katana front end parts I could experiment on.

I'm definitely interested, but I'll wait to purchase it with the belly pan that I'll inevitably be buying from so you can combine shipping.
