    Skulltrain,
    Unfortunately by the time everybody gets their “cut” (pun intended), that’s the cost it commands. The bummer is that those will be purple instead of black in about 3 months.

    Here’s a question for you then how many at that price do you think they will sell for a bike that is not exactly flying out the dealers compared to Harley ……. I think the term (commands) should be replaced with where are they made America or China if it’s the latter there really is NO excuse to charge that amount Ness is not the only game in town and i’m sure there will be others with a more focused attitude to priceing to offer something similar cheaper! …

    Several hundreds will be sold thanks to Cyril’s article. Ha, ha.

    Skulltrain. You don’t understand the custom motorcycle parts market. When Ness sell these tips, he will probably sell one of his other parts with the same Deep Cut design to the same buyer. Cyril said: grips, foot pegs, floorboards, covers, wheels and more. Bikers who customize their rides buy a theme.

    I do understand the custom motorcyle parts market so dont be so presumptuous with your remark …. Ness has always done his own thing and been able to charge people top dollar in the processs and been able to get it …. now there are new kid’s on the block who offer the market trend right now and in the process can supply grips , foot peg’s , etc, etc , etc , at prices that most people can afford and still have a unique custom look and theme running with it as i said he’s not the only player in town wake up Ness! ….

    Actually Skulltrain the recession is over. If you’ve been following the business wires you would see that the bike pictured, as well as the Harleys that Ness makes these for too, are in fact flying out the door. I’m sure in the next 12-24 months they will sell them as fast as a cnc machine can mill them. I think the only danger is as fast the contrast cut theme has skyrocketed into popularity it might fall just as fast.

    Skulltrain,
    Just to clarify the pricing structure, the retail guy is the last guy on the food chain.
    Distributors and dealers get their money first, along with a little something for Ness. Since you may not understand the aftermarket pricing, there is a 30% dealer markup to retail, which sees a 35% markup by the distributor to the dealer before that, and then the manufacturer usually gets about 35% before it hits distributor. Knowing exactly what it costs to machine and process something like this, I can tell you Ness is making around $25-30 each on these after those costs when he’s selling to a distributor. If he sells them straight retail, yes, he gets the big bump, but all pricing has to be done considerate of distributors, especially in Arlen’s case with such a massive representation across the world.
    I completely agree with the pricing level issues you are speaking of, which is the reason we allow certain discounts on our website and through our dealer network…just to take some of the edge off that final price.

    And Bob S…we’ve been doing the black for about 7 years now, a bit before it started blowing up, and I completely agree…we’ve stayed away from the contrast stuff for that reason. I guess I could have considered it (we tested stuff back in 2006 and amazingly, nobody liked the concept…guess we asked the wrong people), and made a ton of money keeping up with the Joneses, but I opted not to.
    It is cool looking, but it will go the way of spinner rims at some point. Keep it simple.

    Skulltrain…one last thing, to answer your question, I’m about 99.9% sure these are made in USA as I know who does the manufacturing for a good portion of Arlen’s stuff and they are a very reputable shop.

  12. 12 rumble Apr 27th, 2012 at 11:11 am

    Skulltrain, you’re kind of shooting your internet mouth off with very little actual knowledge to back it up. Exactly how inexpensive do you think actual T6061 Billet Aluminum parts should cost? Do you even know what that means? Yeah you’re right, there’s cheaper chrome-over-plastic covers out there, but isn’t that the whole point?

    Supreme Team, thanks for voicing a little reality!

    When a company decides to make a really nice exhaust tip, it sometimes gets costly. Especially when you make it in the USA in really small quantities for a niche market. In this case, in order to get the look we wanted, we had to start with an 11 lb peice of 6061-T6 billet aluminum. We then machined it down to less than 1lb, and then finished it in black anodizing by one of the best shops in the country to eliminate the odds of any possible fading down the road. After anodizing, it goes back on the mill again for the raw billet accents. The end result speaks for itself. Although its not the cheapest tip on the market, its a hell of a deal for what it is. BTW…We also them in chrome

    It’s very nice that Cory Ness took the time to reply in person. It’s what all manufacturers/builders should do when somebody here doesn’t understand something.

    Sorry, but that’s not going to happen. Personal loans only go to folks with sotrng credit histories.”I dont care how much the APR is ” You’d BETTER care what the APR is! Only a fool takes out a loan blindly without being sure of what they are paying for the loan. If you went to one of the payday loan ripoff outfits you could EASILY wind up paying over $10,000 for a $3,000 loan. You’d be beholden to the lender for the rest of your life!If your own bank won’t lend you the money they are telling you something. You either don’t have enough established credit to be a worthy credit risk OR you don’t have enough income to pay off a loan of that size. Or both! If you don’t learn how to manage credit wisely now while you are young it will OWN you for the rest of your life.Needless to say, don’t even THINK of contacting the scam artists who spam “loans” here. No legitimate lender would EVER use a yahoo.com or gmail.com or any other throwaway e-mail address. Those bastards will request advance fees from you (probably through Western Union) and you’ll never see a DIME. Advance-fee loans are illegal and anyone who asks for money from you in advance to prepare a loan is a scam artist who will rip you off.
