When looking in my 2007 XL Parts Catalog I noticed that MoCo lists the American Flag Decal as a restricted part on pages 92 and 93. If they have the American Flag copyrighted there are a lot of people ripping them off. All kidding aside, what's up with that?

My guess would be
Made in that size, out of that material for that purpose
But Im not a lawyer........I just usually need one

It's probably part of the armed forces trim, which is also restricted. I'd guess you have to provide proof or military service to buy it.

It is only avauilable if you have a Patriot edition bike like fireman, police of military. Not for sale to the general public. they did the same thing with 100th anniversary bikes.

It's not a copyright issue, just a business decision about who they want to sell the part to - probably just like cafe_dave says, but maybe they advertise the military emblems as "exclusive" so they have to actually exclude some purchasers.

They simply restrict stuff used in special run bikes so people don't get the parts and start passing off standard bikes as special limited run bikes.

I beleive other companies may be selling american flag stickers in just about every material. :D

Just bypass the moco, just like with the expensive parts, and give em the middle finger as you put the flag on the bike.

I think you may have it.......or at least part of it
Hell we are all guessing.....Maybe they just have a limited amount of them
