    It’s gonna be limited to those who have the right paint job for these colors.

    nice looking and both comments are spot on! Very nice looking, and the Performance Issue would be the Key.

    I appreciate the comments, especially in regards to the logo. It’s always a tough call when it comes to branding our pieces, many of our designs are not branded perhaps we will remove the branding on this edition. Keep in mind we can color match virtually any paint scheme with our Mother-of-Pearl inlay process.

    @PB… I would tend to favor the no logo approach while recognizing that it can really help with brand building if used with an advertising campaign in a company that is the right size but for a smaller company it often just looks presumptuous. These air cleaners look nice and would sell them themselves but unless you have a brand like HD, WCC, PM or Baker that has a strong brand image that is supported by print and internet advertising it may be better to just omit any branding until you can grow the brand to a level where it is more appropriate.

    That said like Sollis I think that ANY branding tends to take a way from what is IMHO the “Spirit of the Chopper”: A bike built as much as possible by one guy using his own hands and his own ideas. Of course that is an ideal and not really practical but seeing a bike with logos all over it always strikes me as someone who has got into custom for all the wrong reasons.

    I’ve got to disagree with FP on the branding. I “see” what you mean, but at the same time, if PM didn’t brand, then they wouldn’t be as reknown. Their logo along with RSD’s are a HUGE reason for their growth. Think about RSD…they coattailed PM and introduced the logo…where was RSD 5 years ago compared to now with all the branding?
    You’re absolutely correct on taking away the “spirit of the chopper”, but with everybody ripping everybody off in this industry, your branding’s the last thing you’ve got, and it most definintely helps when somebody sees this cleaner on a bike at a show, then wants to buy one themselves, and would not otherwise know how to find the manufacturer.
    We started branding our controls with our logo simply because we saw rip offs hitting the market, and then somebody with some crappy Chinese control is calling us for a replacement parts thinking it was ours.

    Without sounding crass, so many people are doing these types/styles of air cleaners, that branding is the ONLY thing that seems to differentiate one to the other…I can’t tell whose is whose anymore. We sidelined the idea of doing any air cleaners like this, because the competition is so vast, it has gotten to the point of the custom wheel market a few years ago….the look needs to change somehow

    Though this series is definitely unique, I say stick with the logo…get your name out there. You guys are making a very unique and very pretty product (I like your whole line).
    With a little dough into it, the print advertising etc. will help get that logo/brand out there sooner than you’d expect!

    Good luck with the new product!

    Supreme: You make some good points. I try to do our branding everywhere except on the products but i guess that is a judgment call for each maker. One thing I would suggest tho….If your a new shop trying to establish a brand you may want to look at making the logo it a bit more different then the oval design you have in there. When I first saw the pic i thought it was a Paul Yaffe design who is already also similar to Carl B both of who have very similar logos but are well established.

    Precision Billet is a fast growing company… excellent products, made in the US, great quality and David is a top notch guy. I am sure you’ll see a lot more of those guys in the future.

    As for the branding, I would agree with The Supreme Team… a little logo helps… RSD, Ness and others.
    Keep up the good work guys

    “dont brand your parts? are you nuts ???

    The only thing anyone has going for them in the retail market is their brand .Its for selling ,not for just showing off .Hes not making a one off custom part ,he is making (hopefully) a ton of them to sell .Find me one large succesfull brand that does NOT have a logo or some sort of branding on their parts .

    If you want a custom part without a logo or branding ..make it yourself .

    Not sure it’s that cut and dry. Rebufini, Goodson, Crime Scene prefer to let the design speak for itself and none of them are slouches in the air cleaner cover market.

    The logos could be small on the side somewhere, I would never spend my $ on parts with big logos in you face type products , but thats just me, some big name person in this industry told me if part becomes popular it takes around 6 months before your design/idea gets knocked by copy cats, all you can do make money as much as you can and move on on other designs unless you have pattern which it could eat all your profit if you not friends with numbers .
