2003 Anniversary model paint choices

Hello,

First time poster here. I am looking at an all black color anniversary v rod. Does anyone know if the factory offered an all black 2003 anniversary v rod?

I have seen the anodized, the anodized with a black stripe, but never an all black until now. Thank you in advance.

Welcome to the forum I'm a newbie as well. I just bought a 2003 blue with a silver stripe. I also thought that the silver was the only color. I called Harley and they advised me I have a limited color from 2003.

Only finishes for 03 were anodized or silver with a black stripe.

I believe that was a "Color Shop" limited edition set. Is there a number on the right side of the Air Box?

No I just called the dealer. I thought it was a tin swap as well but there is no numbers on the side. The guy I bought the bike from said he bought it from the showroom floor like that.

Mine came from the showroom floor with a 1 of 200 paint set on it. The Dealer put it on, when it didn't sell as an Orange "B" model.

The first set of painted tins from the factory were the skunk stripped ones on the '03s. The first set of custom ones from the factory are the orange and yellow ghost flame ones I have on my bike. They were limited to a run of 150 and have a small anniversary badge down near the seat. These are not numbered and were very expensive. Soon after, various combination ghost flame kits were produced and limited to serialized numbers up to 200.

Running with RJ's map and topless. Works great so far. Lots of chrome bling and like the lower feel of the Badlander seat.
