I need your thoughts and ideas please. I am currently working on a bolt on product for the air box of a Harley Sportster that would hide your gun in the air box by your right knee. I will be 3D printing this and will need to finalize the design still but I wanted to get
your thoughts on it before I went forward with marketing the product. The type of air box I am working to create it for first is this one
The product would extend the compartment out only 2 inches and would have hinges at the bottom to swing the cover out. Your gun would be readily accessible by unlatching the box at the top but the box will also be lockable so you can leave it in your air box if you needed to go somewhere it wasn’t allowed.
I haven’t figured out how the gun will fit yet but I have an idea its going to be like this
or like this
The reason I thought of this idea was because on my motorcycle I don’t have bags or any compartments to put my gun in and in Florida it is illegal to carry the gun in a backpack to the gun range because this would be considered as carrying on my person which is illegal. It not only provides for a lockable area on the bike if you cannot bring a gun in somewhere but also a readily accessible option to easily reach down and pull the gun up if you needed to instead of reaching to your side or behind your back.
So please give me your thoughts, I would greatly appreciate it.

I collect all forms of disguised firearms. jewelry guns, wallet guns, and others. Most of my collection is pinfire from the 19th century. Have one and want to sell it, let me know.
A 9mm might expand but a .45acp never shrinks.

There's also a reason the airbox on that bike is the size / shape it is. I don't really see putting a gun in there as a great idea.
It is gonna get awful hot there. I would rather lock it under the seat, I can on my bike, but it is not a Harley.

Gunvault in the saddlebag with the cable around the frame. Check your state laws about hidden compartments on vehicles. They tried to make them illegal for anything in CA, but I belive that was defeated and they can only charge for it (in CA) if it is used for smuggling drugs.
I don't always have nothing to say, but when I do, I post it on Facebook.
A Vespa does not a motorcycle make...just sayin.It is gonna get awful hot there. I would rather lock it under the seat, I can on my bike, but it is not a Harley.
Arkansas also has a law regarding secret compartments. Not trying to discourage you it will get pretty hot in there along with all the trash that gets sucked in.
"A first rate man with a third rate gun is far better than the other way around". The gun is a tool, you are the craftsman that makes it work. There are those who say "if I had to do it, I could" yet they never go out and train to do it. Don't let stupid be your mindset. Harryball 2013
I would suggest you keep a copy of the stature in the gun case or whatever as some LEOs are not up to speed on this statute as one might think.

You would have to have some type of solid plate over the air filter and build your box on that plate. Harleys are about torque, torque needs air velocity, not air mass, any interference in the air flow causes turbulence slowing down air velocity. A custom, Harley, air filter housing is guaranteed to get stolen by those "One percenter" squids. They will steal parts from a bike, especially parts that appear out of the ordinary.
I have seen people build custom license plate boxes for the purpose of hiding their smaller sidearms. A box that fastens the frame rails should work much better and would look like some type of tool box and be more difficult to steal..
