Floorboard Trim Picture


Recommended Posts

Does anybody have one? I would like to see the inside, and how they get mounted to the floor boards. Is there a metal plate in it? I can't figure out why they are $200 for the set. So there must be something special.

Thanks for you help.

Anything for a motorcycle, RV or boat is high $ expensive. If ya wanna play, ya gotta pay.

 

I think the trim uses Velcro, but really have no idea.

 

Welcome aboard, love your old Injun! :nod:

"integrated mounting holes" is an odd phrase isn't it?

Take your Indian Motorcycle® custom treatment to the next level by adding Black Leather Floorboard Trim.

 

It expands the presence of handsome, premium leather throughout your motorcycle and enhances the

high-visibility center section of the bike, which includes the powerful Thunder Stroke 111 engine.

 

This trim installs quickly and easily and elevates the floorboards from being utilitarian components

to being part of the motorcycle’s finished, custom styling.

 

The trim includes Indian Motorcycle® script branding near the front to match

bike’s other leather components and 5” long fringe.

  • Color: Black Studded
  • Material: *Premium* Leather
  • Installation: Attach to floorboards using ***integrated mounting holes***
  • Includes: Left- and right-side *Distressed* Tan Leather Floorboard Fringe

Isabel - can't help justify the price, but the leather is mounted to a plastic "frame" that mounts to 3 holes on the underside of the floorboards. Someone messed up the mold though because most people found that one hole does not line up with the hole in the floorboard. Indian provides pop rivets for installation.

 

I can't help you with pictures or a template as I don't have them, but have seen them.

OK, found you some pictures

 

Here's one installed

Here's one that shows the "frame" - note that the one mounting hole broke, but you get the idea

Here's a picture of the pop rivet mount

The Chilhowie board fringe is good stuff.

 

Joe Howard at Horndawg Leather makes excellent board fringe and other Indian leather accessories. http://WWW.Horndawgleather.com

And he is a IIRA member.

Great. Thanks so much for the pics. That sure helped. Yes, Chilhowee and Horndawg Leather are great companies. Hands down. Let's see what we come up with. I'm just not quite sure if I like the cement glue idea. I love that glue for everything else with leather and we go through it by the gallon, but I have never put it direct on a bike. Industrial Velcro would be the alternative.

 

Is that bracket out of metal or plastic? I could make it out of stiff skirting leather. I have to put my tin foil hat on for this one.

 

Thanks again for all your help.

 

LabRat, would it be too much to ask, if you could trace the good bracket, and put it in an envelop for me? I would love to try to replace it with the leather, and sew the fringe/trim onto that. That way it cannot break. I like that idea.

OK. I'll keep my eyes open to get my hands on one. But yes, if someone here on the forum would go through the trouble to trace it for me, I'm sure I will find a way to to show my appreciation.

You buy me a new bike to put the fringe on, and I will trace it for you! That's how I roll... :grin:

I drilled and riveted mine.

Did a pair for someone else also, I forget who.

Maybe me. I know I had some of your board fringe. I do like how the KM fringe folds down over the rivets.

 

HORNDAWGS, BTW, won't fade.

Never occurred to me to hide the rivets.

 

As much effort as it was to precision drill the holes, and hand set the rivets ( with a custom made tool ) I wanted them to show!

 

So how did they hold up for the long run? I've scrubbed mine half gone.
