Cool Gloss Engine Cases ..OOOOOOO Pretty:)

New Powder Coated Engine Casings

The inspiration for this project was those wonderful Vincent's with their gloss black engine covers. Who doesn't like or wouldn't want a Vincent or the earlier HRD? I always thought those black engine with the gloss black covers was so sophisticated and classy. So why not on a Bobber was my logic.

I love the matt black of the engine but for me these gloss black casings just take it to a whole new level. I was fortunate enough (with the kindness of a fellow member) to grab a whole set of spare casings which I had powder coated best quality high glass black. The sprocket covers, main left & right casings and the value cover. All just fitted and I can't take my eyes off her. She's like a cute petite curvy girl with a black cocktail dress on - a real eye full.

Cheerio,

Roy

They match your hard cases which really compliments your bike. Have you thought to tint your windshield? It would look great

Hi Jay,

Thanks for that. Yes I looked into tinting the screen but from research I've done, it would seem this may not be possible.

Cheerio,

Roy

Tint film should work! I tinted all my tail lights with a spray tint! It looks great

Thanks Jay,

I'll look into it. A very light tint would look really cool.

Cheerio,

Roy

Here’s what I used! It’s made in the U.S. Very light coats and comes out perfect.
My rear tail light is bright but looks excellent. Should be great on windshield. I would spray it from the inside.
