Should is the operative phrase there friend...
Now granted I only started looking (literally) yesterday. But the ongoing saga started back in November when I picked up the bike (at night) got is back home, and then finally having a chance to view the paint job under florescent lighting in the garage saw that the hyper critical surface preparation steps had not been done.
Pardon the side track, but while I'm not a painter, I have done paint work in the aircraft industry (many years ago). Back then I shot everything from enamels, to ceramics, to solid film lubricants for high pressure flanges. And the one transcendent key to a good application was and always will be:
Surface preparation, surface preparation, and surface preparation.
So when under the florescent lights I saw the forming press marks shining through the allegedly $900 paint job ...Well ... I had a shit fit.
The shop I'd taken it to was owned by a guy I'd gone to high school with. And he'd drug himself through a knothole to get the bike back to me in time for the holidays. He'd left the fender in it's box, because there shouldn't have been any need to inspect it since to had been shot by one of the area dealers preferred painters. And then it was installed in shop which was lit with mercury vapor lights...
We're talking serious rush job last minute - thanks bro - pickup at 7:00pm on fucking Christmas eve. He missed it ... Shit happens.
When I brought it back later and showed him the - lack of - quality in the paint job. He was - quite possible - madder than I was.
The old fender was hammered back into shape. The new fender was returned to the painter for repair. And then the big storm that hit Louisiana the same time my - possibly painted properly - fender did...resulted in it being flushed out into the Gulf of Mexico somewhere.
So short version is, my buddy's shop is going under, he's cashed me out for a "fair market" value of the (now still dangling issue) fender ... And I'm effectively on-my-own trying to find said and aforementioned proper replacement fender.
...According to eBay, they're not nearly as popular as I'd hoped they would be..
Regarding your pic, yes it's a nice fender...but it's just not me. I'm kind of a grouchy, old school, just want it to be stock kind of guy.
Can you post a picture of the Eglide fender? (I'm not adverse to a bit of trim - if the paint matches)
