Thinking about a color change and was wondering if there is an alternative to eBay for purchasing a complete set. Seems like most sellers on eBay are wanting around 3k plus shipping and most of these ads stay up for quite a while. Has anyone seen any other options?
The chances of finding a complete set all the same color are slim, it can happen but the chances are slim. Of the 4 sets of tins that I have cobbled together I was only able to purchase 1 complete set and even then the set was from an 05 bike and I had to find an 08 or newer tank for my paint project.
Your chances are better to put a set together from mis-match original paint parts that fit similar years. Search Craiglist in your area and within 100 miles of you to find the parts you will need. Seek out your local "Lehman" trike dealer or other dealers that do conversions, they may have spare parts or have a great list of leads for folks that have kept their old parts after a conversion to a trike.
From front to back;
Front fender; 98-13 model years same front fender will fit, $50-100 depending on condition and original paint color. Rushmore 15-17 will fit those years, $75-125
Outer Fairing; 98-13 model years same front fairing will fit, $200-400. Rushmore 15-17 $200-400
Inner Fairing: personally I had mine painted vivid black, goes with any color scheme. 98-13 $100-300. Rushmore 15-17 same price
Fuel Tank; 98-07 model years except Road King tanks, 50-400$. 08-17 same tank, again except Road King
Side Covers; 98-08 $60-100 for the pair, 09-17 same price
Rear Fender; 98-08 $40-125, 09-17 same price.
Finding exact parts for a roadglide does become a little tougher but keep searching and if you have any questions about fitment, ask away
Here is an example of bike put together with multiple year exchangeable parts. Guess which year the frame, engine and transmission are from? Those that know keep the secret, we'll make a game of it.
