Give A Chin To Your Harley Sportster

For 2011 Harley-Davidson offers no less than 6 different Sportster models: 883 Low, 883 N Iron, 1200 Low, 1200 Nighster, XL Forty-Eight and XR1200X. Sportsters also represent the segment with the largest number of units sold. All models begging for custom after-market components. Something that Doug Wozney noticed. Hence this new Pro-Tour “S” Chin Fairing bolting on rigid or rubber mounted Sportsters without any drilling necessary. Sold in paint-ready gelcoat, including a black powder coated mounting bracket. Retail price $139.50. Made in Wisconsin. Dougz Custom Paint & Fabrication.

    Why does it cost so much?

    Captain Bob,

    The Pro-Tour ‘S’ chin fairing isn’t a cheap Chinese plastic part, like most other fairings. Its made of hand-laid (not chop gun) fiberglass, by a real deal – tax paying American (that’d be me). The mounting bracket is already powdercoated and ready to bolt up to the chassis, not bare metal, so its a quick 5 minute bolt-on item that even a novice wrench can handle (no labor $).

    In EU you can buy it for 29 boring euros = cca 39.50$ :):):).

    Just checked the Euro conversion table as well as the link to the chin posted by baddad. Sure enough the “universal” (thats scary) fairing by itself sells for 29 EU – converts to $40.80, add the “universal” mounting kit – another $19.80 US$. Wait! there’s shipping – from the EU, that’ll be at least another $30.00 minimum. So you’ve got $90.50 wrapped up in a ‘Universal” chin that ‘should’ fit. Please – somebody take a chance on the chin from the other side ‘o the big lake and report back on Cyril’s blog with your results! Mine is 100% guaranteed to fit – thats the way real Americans do things – honestly.

    Doug –

    What purpose does the “chin” serve? Any? I have a rubber-mounted sporty…just wondering..

    Thanks!

    🙂

    Ok,
    So lets count.:) If someone from EU wants to order chin made in USA it will cost 139,50$ pus 30$ shipping, plus 23% taxes = 38,985$ it makes 208,485$. Or he can buy german chin for 40.85$ plus 19.80$ for mounting kit, it makes 60,75$. It is 3,43185 times cheaper or 147,735$. Lets not forget quality, Germans make Mercedes, BMW, Porsche…. :):):)

    Hey, guys. Depending from where you ship in the US and to where in Europe and of the UPS international shipping rate you use (3 different speeds and prices) it will cost you $68 to $92 to ship a total of 5 pounds to Europe.

    Waitaminute,

    Really, its just an aesthetics thing… gives an XL owner a way to add a splash of color down at that part of the bike, and it covers up the lower, kind of ugly part of the engine, where the rubber mount is located. It will direct a slight amount of air towards the rectifier to help cool it, but they don’t get extremely hot anyhow, so it still comes back to aesthetics.

    Soo … why are we arguing about whether or not to buy which one from what country? How about if you’re in America buy and American one, and if you’re in Europe buy a European one? Support your neighbor’s job for cryin’ out loud! I’m not excited to see the unemployment rates go up any more than they already are ….
