    These are aluminum with Black Vinyl bonded to it's surface. Same grain as the seat's covering.

    I didnt put the Sportster Heat Deflectors up on my web site yet. I was just showing you all what I made. You are the first of any forum that is seeing these. They will be up for sale shortly. I'm still gathering information on what years and style sportster they will fit. One of my questions were about the tank sizes that HD offers. What I seen is the 4.5. What I made will fit that size tank. The tank in the 3 gallon range. Doesn't sit back as far enough on the frame towards the rear mounting bolt. Though there is a chance that the deflector style I have made will still work with that size tank. Im still trying to confirm that. The sportsters with the peanut tank. My design will Not work with those. However I feel that the individual that rides that style will Not be interested in my heat deflectors. So as it stands for now the riders with the 4.5 tanks. The deflectors I have now will work with their bikes. Another thing to be concerned about is the type of seating you changed on your Sportster. If the seat doesnt butt against the tank. One will be able to see that the deflectors are two pieces. I cant make deflectors as one piece out of my materials to fit under the seat at the tanks rear mounting bolt. I feel that my deflectors will fit 2007 to present. Maybe the earlier years from 2004 to present. Providing they have the 4.5 tank and the seat that butts against the tank. In the mean time,... here's some more shots of other styles I came up with. Jeweled studding.

    I was asked how much for these. I'm going to do a introductory sales price of $111.00. This is for standard, studded or jeweled style, delivered to your door, providing you are located in the States. International orders will have to pay for the shipping.

    What I would like to do is to have anyone interested is purchasing our product. To call in your order. International orders will have to contact us through email so we can send a request for payment through Pay Pal. Contact info is on our web site.

    Nice job but, do the sportsters have a problem with the heat?? I had an 05 and never came close to feeling any heat.

    There's a few ways one could answer that.
    It depends on the individual rider and with the other deflector models Ive sold over the years. I remember in 02 when I first started selling them. Riders purchased them because they liked the look of them on their bikes. It wasnt till they went through the winter and summer came around that a few got back with me to say they were surprised as to how the product deflected the heat away from them.

    Also 2nd degree burns start at 120degs and there's no way you'll get that rear cylinder to run under that temp. You yourself said that the heat didnt bother you. I would think setting over 120 degs., wouldnt be a discomfort and yet we are actually tanning our hides at 120 and above.

    I have 2 dressers, ones been converted by me into a trike and the other stayed as a 2 wheeler. The two wheeler I rode all the time and thats what I used to design my 1st heat deflectors on.
    One time I remember removing them and riding my bike like the way I use to and man o man what a difference! I couldnt believe the heat I was experiencing.

    Heat Deflector sales really took off when the 07's were introduced. With EPA Standards being so strict and the Motor Company having to comply with them by leaning the engines out. The heat deflectors really aided you when you were stuck in stop and go traffic.

    Im like you. On my 1992 I felt the heat. It wasnt unbearable most of the time. If the bike seemed too hot. I'd shut it down. But it wasnt till I had the deflectors on and riding that way and then removing them. That I realized just how much heat I was actually subjecting myself too.

    So instead of making them just as heat deflectors. I made them look factory, as to blend with the bikes looks. So if anyone purchases them for looks alone. Your still getting more than just a cosmetic item.
