I scored a couple of Zambini 4 color war bonnets to go on the sky blue and white Chief Vintage. A little pricey, but I think it will be a nice addition.

Lots of fakes out there. Beware.
So what?

Nothing really special about Zambini other than they got a cease and desist letter from Polaris to stop making them. Which is what drove the price up on the existing ones.

If people make fakes just as good, the more there are, the cheaper they'll get.

I guess you could look at it that way.

The Zambini itself is an adorned knockoff of someone else's intellectual property, so the knockoffs of the knockoffs (ie stolen property) are as "legit" as the Zambinis.

Very nice. i also bought a 4 color set along with the war bonnet fender light, i believe from the same guy on eBay. He is areal nice guy and Indian enthusiast from Texas.you should have received the signed Zambini certificate of authenticity and life time warranty. according to the seller , Zambini can still make them (as he still has the molds ) for warranty purposes.

It's funny how these thing just keep popping up. It wasn't like very many people thought of these things like they did of beanie babies. I have an original pair on a 91 Drifter. They look great on there boys. Especially when I consider they're worth almost as much as the bike.

These are the real deal with the certificate. I can highly recommend this seller. First class Gentleman.

How can you possibly be sure they are "authentic" if they are not sold directly by the manufacturer? They're painted, cast resin things with a paper certificate. If Zambini got a C&D and agreed to comply, they can't be dumb enough to make and sell more risking the wrath of a multi $ billion corporation. They are listed as new, looks like seller has a few, and probably sold a bunch already.
