so I have a question for you fellow CVO owners. I got my FLTRXSE2-ANV home today (2500 mile/42 hour round trip - but that's a story for a different forum). I bought her sight unseen. I got a quick look at one that had been sold but not delivered at a local dealership but I was going primarily off pics & reviews I found here and elsewhere online.
I am a chrome kind of guy. On my '12 RGC that got totaled I had chromed out nearly everything that was chrome-able. (new word). But I was coming to grips with the fact that the 110th aniversary shark has lots of black. So I load her up yesterday in Illinois & unload her today in New Hampshire. I had originally planned on waiting a few months before deciding whether or not I changed the handlebars & controls to chrome to see if the black grew on me. Well, the handlebars & controls are flat black - FUGLY (no offence to you denim fans). I probably would have learned to love gloss black handlebars & controls had they been gloss - other parts of her that are gloss black have grown on me already.
Soooo..... After spending hours here looking for options for CVOs, I have found very few. I do understand that the CVOs take a different bar than the FLTRX or FLTRU at the mount point. If I am going to go thru the trouble of changing bars, I AM going chrome. I do have all the chrome controls & braided lines off my '12 FLTRX, so what I need are handlebars, mirrors, & quite possibly cowbells. Ah yes wiring extensions. I have to see the blacked out cowbells with the added chrome first before making that decision.
I am looking for pics of CVO's with aftermarket handlebars & where they came from. Price is always in the back of my mind, but look & comfort is first & foremost. Oh, and I will pay my local indy to do the wiring, so not a major concern that I will get frustrated doing the install or raped by the local stealership.
Thanks fellow shark owners!!
