Lightweight Harley Truck Front Bumpers!

Posted in the L section, but didn't post in the HD section!

I was able to get a mold made from my factory upper bumper, to get lightweight fiberglass versions made. Saves a quick 30 lbs off the nose with just a 1 for 1 swap out, up to 70 lbs depending how far back you cut the frame if you choose to also do so.

Bolts to the grille shell, like the L guys do their bumper mod. Fab 2 quick flat brackets for the lower corners to stiffen it up. Quality is insane for a piece of fiberglass, but it's hand made by one of the best fab shops in the business, not mass produced by workers who can't speak English, or overseas!

ANyway, just wanted to share this item now exists for the HD guys who don't venture over to the L side of the forum. Here's the details in the classified ad...

The only caveat, these are a limited offering. This isn't a group buy, it's just a limited window of availability. Once the mold gets packed into storage, don't expect to see them again for a very long time, if ever. Precision is an insanely busy shop with an easy year waiting list to even get in there. THese are just available now since I've been on the wait list forever to get mine made, and while the mold is available and on the stand, Joe said he'd build a few more before packing it away.

Next up.....lightweight tailgates.....yep that's right! It'll be a while for those, but that's already in the queue lol
