Mike's Custom Grills

I found on ebay an individual who is selling custom grills for all makes of bikes to include the vn750. Has anyone bought one and installed it. Also, I do not buy or sell on ebay anymore because of unauthorized charges ebay sometime ago. I cannot send a message by ebay to Mike. Does anyone have another email address for him. thanks

There, I've contacted him about maybe making a group orintated grill. Something that signifies us, as us. We'll see what he has to say.

That is a great price for the grills. Boy do they look great. Just picked up a engine grill on Ebay at a good price and a seat pad. This looks like something I also need, they are 1/3 the price of other ones on Ebay, and they are new.
Thanks for the info.

Skulls and crosses...too "retro" for me..and a bit too "Harleyesque"


How about a nice big outline of a gloved hand giving the "finger" ...now that is badass baby....

Talking

Well for what it's worth. I've been e-mailing him back and forth a few times. He's interested in doing a group run of vn750.com oriented grills for us. I don't have an exact quote on the cost yet. We're still working out a few details of file formats & such. I'm looking for ideas for the main body of the grills. I'm going to creats a simplified version of the logo, but I don't think it should be the main of the grill. I kinda like the thought tribal flames with the logo at the top. Shoot me some Ideas. If we can get a group idea worked up, I can work up a design or two. put it to a vote on the final & as long as we have enough orders it will all be good. I should know in the next day or so for a minimal order. Later!

i like the grills, it is a "cheap" dress up, and could be an identifing vn badge if one could be designed. however, even though i like it, the idea, living in texas, where ambient temp. from now till oct. will rarely be less than 80 deg., more likely to be 90-103, i would be concerned that the cooling would be affected.. any thoughts? ride safe
