Where did you buy the pivot and rear axle covers ?
Good question. My DX didn't come with rear axle covers either.

I think those are standard issue HD rear axle covers. They only come in chrome, so I'm betting he had them pc'd.

Nice looking ride, Blackgold! I love the pipes!!!:notworth:

But they don't come with the bike itself, correct?

Nicely done. You didn't change anything drastically and take away from the theme. Nice looking bike. One of the best looking DX's I've seen.

That looks great man. I just got some stuff powder coated for my DX as well. I havent found the part number yet but I have to get some new bushings for the brake, shifter and hand levers. Did you have to get new bushings as well?

Also I like those grips, first blacked-out grips that I have seen that I actually like. I bought the aviator grips but I havent installed them yet... hmm...
