Bought new @ J&L HD here in Sioux Falls, S.D.. Trailered it home, and took it apart,(with "zero" miles on it), before it got dirty or scratched.During the course of the winter before, I had selected several parts that I thought would look better Orange than Chrome. I removed these parts, and painted them with 3-part "Mirage Orange Pearl". (the factory metallic orange color). Still have a few parts I'd like to do..... As of September 2011, have logged 15,000 pretty much trouble-free miles.
