These are Kuryakyn floorboard chromed covers that go right on top of the factory floorboards. They do look amazing in person.

I had done this mod to my Raider so I kept the template and reused it on this cover. I taped the whole face of the cover and placed the template. I used a jigsaw with a blade to cut like butter. Steady hand to cut and a good eye for the filing and your good to go. I used 1/16" thick perf aluminum for the screen.

Here is a picture of my Stratoliner Deluxe side cover I also did.

I've had a number of guys ask me about this mod.
They like the look and want to do it to their's but they don't have the confidence to attempt it without the possibilities of ruining the cover.

If you like the mod and you want to have it done pm me.

Most of you have seen the black cover currently on my bike, and now this chromed cover.
My black cover was off of my Raider so I had both black and chrome to switch back and forth if I choose to.

A few had asked if I wanted to sell it they were interested.
I have already sold my black cover.
I think I'm going to sell my chrome unit as well.
If one of you want it pm me.

I'm doing another mod as soon as I can.
I'll show it off once it's done.
Lol

I tried PM'ing you but but unable to, the message said you were not accepting PM's. Very much interested on the chrome piece with the dark mesh. How can I get my hands on one?
Thank you.
