Lovely work mate. How long does a job like that take and what do you charge.

That you did Neo, thanks very much for the prompt reply. I'd reckon there are others besides me that would be interested in your reply, thats sort of what I was trying to get at.

Have you received many snaps of your work back from customers after being fitted ? It'd be great seing those pieces in the sunlight fitted to a worthy machine.
Rock on !

On a recent trip to Melbourne, I visited a professional engraver to get a "quote" for this.

Image

His quote was 10hrs @ $75p/h, total $750.

I dropped by the local HD dealer and the most expensive "genuine" accessory clutch cover they have is $350.

I have to buy the part, repair it if needed, polish it, design the scroll work and then cut it.

This piece is a one-off, where as there are thousands of copies of each HD part.

It's a beautiful piece of work Neo.

I know how long it takes to do one off stuff as that is what I do on whole bikes and it is a pain at how expensive it makes things, but taxation and living costs being what they are there's no choice, but to charge a reasonable hourly rate... just glad there are people who can afford custom work.
