It's not a Harley so I'm not sure how well chrome bling will sell.

I'd think about one in black. But Chrome NOT for me. I've even de-chromed my Fatboy over the years.

Well, I was looking for Red CNC T-6061 AL CNC, except the only one was an ebay Chinese with no hardware, instructions, or service. I have enough ebay, Chinese, Viet Nam, and Thailand bad buys to last me a lifetime: so any red flags limits my purchasing field.

It's my only polished SS piece (and ACTUALLY, it is POLISHED SS, NOT CHROME); and when someone asks what my bike is, I'll just point to it. What a time-saver!

Most of the rest of my bike is in black with no chrome at all, so it's nice break up shadow effect of dullness. I'm not Johnny Cash, and my bike is not a dirt bike (AND ACTUALLY, it is NOT CHROME so please quit the chrome bitchin'!)

my bike says sylvester.. i love peoples look of confusion and ya buying anything from ebay (not just china) is a game of risk, ive gotten screwed by more deals from the usa and canada then china. but i also only buy from pitiable sellers that have customer reviews that are not fake and only buy an item after i did some research on it (if its anything over $2 that is)


and next time you want something like that made go to a metal shop (if you have one in range) you could have gotten that made for a 6pack and a fiver probably

I'll give you that, but not engineered to interface with 'my' brake system with SS screws too. It was all that was out there meeting my criteria for quality. And there is a continuum of risks associated with the source, so no one is safe at any time. But just wasting my time getting my money back is the greatest theft possible. I paid $10 too much for a quality good I didn't have to return, order hardware for, or re-engineer on assembly: sounds like a great deal to me.

Theoretically, it won't make me sad until after I try it out first. SS is always a good background for flat black paint if I sand it with a coarse grind sand paper (and Rustoleum paint may not need surface prepping) I'll check it out first and may ride it that way before I decide. All input is good input, but I can clearly do either. Deciding without seeing it on your bike is always hard to visualize, so I like to hear all points on both sides beforehand.

The Sun may reflect light in my eyes with it right in front of me and it may look too 'Harley gaudy' for my tastes. If it isn't 'perfect', it will stand out pretty bad on my bike
