Billet Proof

Billet Proof Acquires Aeromach Product Range

Collegeville, Pennsylvania based Billet Proof Designs has been on the expansion trail - in April of 2020 they bought the manufacturing and distribution rights to Paul Aiken's Aeromach Mfg product line.

Damian Ercole founded Billet Proof Designs in 2012, manufacturing and selling motorcycle parts out of a 600 sq ft garage, with a backyard shed as a warehouse and a spare bedroom as an office.
"Our goal was to get the everyday guy more involved with the parts they were putting on their bikes," explains Damian. "Customizing is a very personal thing, and while there are many great volume produced parts out there, it can be tough for riders to be able to get exactly what they want and to try to make that crossover from just buying something to having parts on their bike that they have had a stake in making.

"Our first product line was laser-cut steel battery boxes that could be bent by hand and welded by the average fabricator. From there, we have grown into a 6,000 sq ft facility with thousands of SKUs. We are a small company and pride ourselves on the level of attention we give our customers. Our team has built choppers, cafĂ© racers, dirt bikes, scooters and more, and we’re happy to offer technical support and advice to people even if they haven’t made a purchase with us, and we understand the frustrations that riders with a vision of what they are looking for often run up against."

Damian grew the Billet Proof line to include floorboards, footpegs, shifters, highway bars, covers, motor mounts and kits, handlebars, risers and mirrors and hard to source parts such as weld-on tabs and bungs.
"We make most of what we sell but also stock selected, complementary products from well-known brands and manufacturers such as Ness, Fat Baggers, Joker Machine, Rick's Motorsports Electrics and more, so the Aeromach range of luggage racks, floorboard relocation kits, levers, kickstand extensions, license plate frames and such like just fitted really well with what we already make - especially with the emphasis on parts for Indians.
"Since we already had CNC manufacturing capabilities in-house, and we were already familiar with the Aeromach product line as we carried a number of its parts, this has been a perfect fit. The majority of Aeromach’s products are manufactured by us right here in Collegeville, PA, with the same attention to detail that Aeromach’s customers have come to expect."
