The Demon Trimline Motorcycle Trunk -
Our Demon is 100% hand made in our shop by us. From waxing the molds that we designed and built, spraying gelcoat to 40 mils,
spraying neutral gel & polyester resin to another 80 mils, hand laying and pressing 30 square feet of 1.5 oz fiberglass mat, installing OSB in
the lower layers of the bottom for strength, laying additional reinforcements in the hinge, latch, and top areas, cutting &
trimming, sanding, fitting, painting and/or buffing, hand drilling and fitting all 100+ pieces of hardware, laying interior carpet, and
finally assembling these units...all a very tedious labor of love.
Dimensions... Our Demon is a unique height/thickness,
different from anything else on the market! The Demon has a smaller base footprint of 15-1/2" wide at the
back, about 17" wide in the front, 5" thick at the rear, and 6-1/2" thick in the front. It was designed from
scratch to target bikes where speaker lid clearance is an issue (especially those with huge speaker
setups), bikes where the owner wants to mount a pack LOW and not have a bag lid issue, and some of the
builds with narrow bags (crossovers, etc) that want a tighter & more lean look from behind. It's the newest
kid on the block! You can put a 1/2 helmet, jacket, etc in it AND close the lid!
What makes us different? Unlike most everything else
on the market that is plastic, ABS, or heavy Chopper Gun fiberglass, the Demon we manufacture is all
hand laid and pressed glass, OSB reinforced flat bottom (no need for the H-D bottom plate inside).
These aren't the cookie cutter plastic stuff seen everywhere, they are each built to order for the customer,
with the specific options and features you want. We also do a lot of "one off" pieces for people, so don't be
afraid to ask if you have a special request!
It comes fitted and built! All 100+ pieces of hardware are drilled, fitted, and installed. Hinges/locks, lid seal, lanyard, latches, etc. All the hard
work is done for you, unlike most of the other packs out there that come to you as a box full of parts to figure out. It
also has an extended rain drip to help keep water out. It doesn't need the metal reinforcement plate in the bottom like
H-D and all the plastic trunks under various names from China. We use locking latches with the locks built-in, no need for
separate hole in the trunk for a lock. The hinges are our own design and a significant inrovement over HD latches, with
welded hinge pins and an improved hinge footprint for better load distribution. We build our own rubberized lid restraint
with a stainless steel interior for a rattle-free lid stay.
Primer or Color? We can fabricate this in Red Oxide or 2K Urethane primer for painting for $450, and Vivid Black gelcoat for $500. Color match is available, but we recommend
you have that done by a local painter who can actually see your bike and perfectly match it to your bike. If you don't have a
local painter for your color matching, we can take care of you. We pay the shipping to you, if you live in the USA.
Options available are:
- Interior carpet package, Typically $50 installed in the bottom, $80 for the top and bottom. Most people only do the lower
- Reverse build: Uniquely available only from us. Latches on LH side, hinges on RH side, great for big wheel bikes with
centerstand and trikes, you step off the bike on the left and open the pack without having to walk around the bike as
with a std HD setup. Since those bikes don't lean to the left, a reverse build is a great option at no extra cost.
- Chrome, flat black, or gloss black hardware (hinges, latches, screws) = No extra cost
- Down-n-Dirty custom backrest from HighRollers MC Seats = $175.
We don't build the bottom mount, but we can point you at some very cost effective choices used by many of our customers.
We typically prefer to deal with our Demon customers on a one-on-one basis, to get every detail of our custom fabrication
and assembly of these perfect. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your needs, and be sure to check out daily
