Black Battery boxes for larger 12volt batteries


Well Known and Active Forum Website User

Anyone know where you can get a larger black battery box that will fit a 12 volt battery (big one that powers the electric start, 14aH).

Alternatively, does anyone know someone who can make a custom one to suit the measurements of the battery?

I'm going to paint it black in the interim, but would like to add the detail of the rubber type box if I can.

paint it black and cut a piece of black rubber to fit over the top - the battery is the last thing you will notice when looking at a vincent :)
