I'm looking to see if anyone can post a pic of the cowbells they've changed out on their bikes when they did a chrome front end. It maybe pushing the request that if possible it be with a red bike and maybe a contrast chrome wheel ? Looking to do my cowbells but I don't know what to put on before I take my front end apart. Thanks in advance......I know we all like to show off our bikes so I don't foresee a problem with this request lol

Mine are color matched Black Quartz. Can't really tell in pics. But when I did the front end I had them painted. I think it's a detail that adds to making your bike stand out. No matter what color my bike was. That's what I'd do.

Totally agree with ya there on color matching. I did the same thing on my 11' RGU, but on that bike there's a piece that was chrome literally right above the cowbells. I don't know what it's called. On my 17' it's color matched and I think if I wound up color matching the cowbells too it would look a little funny. Even on the cvo street Glide I just saw last week at the dealership that piece was chrome with sliders painted to match. The little things we loose sleep about lmao.

I think it looks better with the cowl matching. Better flow. It's not chrome, color, chrome.

I wish BQ showed up better in pics.

To me. The all color to chrome looks better. But you can always but that piece in Chrome. Then you can swap it out and see what you like.

This is the front end of my bike which is a 08 but it will give you a idea. The cowbells are HD the lower fork sliders, wheel spacers and wheels I got from Willy Shinys. The wheels are HD Street Glide wheels that were chromed.
