Screen printed texture on aluminum
Harley-Davidson Fuel Cap Cover
• Duplicate milled surface created in early prototypes
Early modeling of the fuel cap cover insert was done with a mill. Harley-Davidson designers wanted to keep the fine milled lines in the prototype logo on the production version of the insert. Northern Engraving designers developed a subtle line pattern which uses a screen printed texture to duplicate the milled look. The texture is applied in the silver area of the insert contrasting with the matte black background. It is interesting to see a second version of the insert printed with a black logo on bright aluminum.
