We are introducing a new product. These are Black Feathers made from 1/4" thick ABS plastic. They come with double stick tape. They can be applied to most any surface on your bike. (They don't work well on the tires.) They can enhance the "Indian" look of your bike. (Not recommended for Harleys.) They are being offered at a special intro price at www.IndianAftermarket.com

Can't do other colors for now. We use the black for other products. Once I start using other colors it will tie up too much money. But the black ones started selling instantly. The black goes with the black found on all the Indian bikes. You are welcome to buy and try. If you don't like the color you can return them. You only lose shipping costs.

I am using 3M brand tape. It cost twice as much as some off brands. I have found it to work great on other products. However, I stand behind my products anyway. I am very excited about this product. I am using the same feather concept to design some new floorboards also. My little foundry can't handle the volume of aluminum required so I have to buy some more equipment. The fun never stops.

Thanks for the compliments. I am not much of an artist. I studied photos of feathers and then began drawing them on the computer. They looked pretty weak at first. I just kept redrawing small sections over and over until I understood what look real. It also made me think how incredible feathers really are. They are structurally extremely light weight and flimsy, yet a bunch of them together can carry the weight a bird.

If anybody wants to send a special color plastic to me. We can cut them out on our laser. I think the black looks best especially since the texture we are using looks right. And I like the name "black Feathers". But I can understand wanting different colors.

Thank you guys for so much interest. The feathers are made from ABS plastic. If you want to paint them I recommend a light sand blast or sand paper before applying paint. Any one that plans to paint let me know and I will send you a sample of the material to test first. Of course it would also help others to document your procedure and post it. I agree the black would not look good on the cream and green paint scheme (which is my favorite of all the bike colors). However, black does look good with all of the other colors. It even looks good on black as my photos show. It is subtle but looks good. The double stick tape is made by 3M and is one of their stronger versions. It should last for several years at least. Cheap tape is worthless.
