I have the opportunity to buy a king tour pak from a good friend of mine. He bought it when he got a new street glide last year, and has never used it. He traded that bike in on a trike(health issues), and now has the extra pak. It has the detachable mount, wrap around backrest pad, rear lights, top rack, liner and luggage bag. The only thing is that it is vivid black and my bike is denim black. I can get the pak for 800.... does this sound like a good deal? I already have the 4 point docking kit installed on my bike
My only concern is the paint. I have read all of the blitz black posts and have read about spraying parts with plasti dip to match the denim paint. I would like to avoid paying another few hundred for paint if I can. It would be nice if I could just put a flat clear on it...
So what do you think? Is this a good/bad deal? Is it going to be too much hassle trying to paint for the price of the trunk? I am leaving around Aug. 1 for a 3 month trip across the U.S. on the bike and I know the extra space would be nice.
Any comments and suggestions are appreciated, thanks!!
