Anybody black out there bright red Road Glide? I would appreciate any pictures of blacked out or contrasting black and chrome color schemes. I have the Hard Kandy Red on mine and I am trying to decide which way to go! Hard time finding pictures on the net. Thanks in advance!

Was wondering what brand of jack is that? Want one but would rather not have to spend an arm and a leg.
Thanks
It is a Sear pro. I have had it sense 2007 a gift.
1. It is not a J&S
2. It works and I can move any of the bikes around on it
3. It is scary at first but stable.
If you need a budget one it is great. If you want the best buy a J&S. Problem with these dam bikes is you end up with so much stuff over the years I have 3 jacks 2 dollies 2 wheel chalks. Never ends.
Just for a laugh back when they were doing all the shots with some sitting on a pit bull and a J&S and other brands to show the difference I had to do it with the Sears just because.

Another place I went Black on that bike was the back end The Fica and Black spoiler lights on the bags, also Black luggage rack. I never wanted to black it out just break it up some. Was a great bike retired it some time back.

Hey DED HD thanks for replying to my thread. I am checking out your build thread. Very nice! BTW, love your derby cover! Thought you might have put something on your fender about "a long strange trip" Ha ha

Anymore bright red bikes with some or all black trim? Just going to do mine piece by piece as the money becomes available. Just don't want to regret it later...

How tall are you? I'm 5' 11" and that windshield made a huge difference on the highway. I can hear the stereo way better and the buffeting is gone.

Mine is a little darker red, but you'll get the idea.
Thanks for the picture! Very close to what I was thinking of doing. I will be more of a contrast scheme at first until more funds appear but I think I'm on the right track!

I'm ordering exhaust tomorrow or Monday so any more pics would be greatly appreciated!
On the black heat shields I used the HD ceramic coated ones. Had a few friends tried Power coated ones that did not work out long term. The factory heat shields are over a Fuel Moto 2-1-2 ceramic header.
With a touch of pig spit now and then the ceramic ones looked good for a lot of miles.
Good luck on your plan for it.
