Agree with @skratch said. And more likely can sell them to recoup some cash. And congrats on the new sled. Beautiful colors

I like chrome too. Did they charge extra for the swap?

Very nice ride!! Congrats.

I went to visit her again the other day. She looks so good! But she is waiting on what I consider a major upgrade, so she won't be coming home for a week or two.
She's going to completely chromed out. (I know that may disappoint some of you. But chrome is what I love.)
In the meantime, here are some updated pics!

make sure that you take all your old blacked out parts with. they have a tendency to hang on to them, and either the techs take them home, or they sell them off their clearance table later.
THIS ^^^^^ Make sure you do this. No matter what. They're your parts. All of them. You can make a bunch back selling it off yourself.

What @scratch said and you can move them here too. What didn't you get the chrome version to start with clean canvas, price too good?

Thanks for the advice about holding onto the parts they take off. I assume most stock parts will be hard to sell. But, it's worth giving it a shot.

They did, indeed. But definitely worth it, in my book! But, honestly, the dealer is doing me a solid. He's been great!

The Reef Blue / Vivid Black only comes in the blacked out version. The chrome options are Black, Gauntlet Grey/Vivid Black, and Mineral Green Metallic. The middle scheme is last year's color and the green just didn't speak to me. But I love these colors!

Not when they're black powder coat factory parts. They'll sell. When you get your parts back post them up here for sale.

I ordered it back in November. I went in yesterday to touch base and see when it might come in. He said it was in the back... I was stoked! He took me back to see it, then I spent 2 hours ordering parts.
They just need to get it ready and add my parts. It may be a bit, but I am chomping at the bit!
Congrats looks great.

Okay, saw this at a local dealership. THEY HAVE THE COLOR SCHEME Correct!! LOL

Blue over Black - the entire bike!

I did some digging and found the following on HD website.

This is the only two tone color this year on a Special and the scheme is different from the Limited altogether. Much easier to see when the pix are stacked. Chrome option only available on the Special.

HD's site shows what you noticed on the Limited. The colors are flopped on the fairing. I'm starting to think with all the extra black due to seating on the Limited it isn't that bad of an idea.

Yep. I saw that and I don't get it still. It just brings a certain level of crazy to the surface that if I were gonna buy, I'd be determined enough to buy the Special and then add the Tour Pack and any of the things I felt were needed. Or repaint the Limited parts. Or buy the Special's fairing and fender and replace it on the Limited. (see...it makes me crazy) Bwaaaa haaaaa haaaaa
Sure it would cost me more - probably as much as having all the black swapped for chrome. But alas, these are just the ramblings of a middle-class income guy. LOL

Congrats! That Blue and black is gorgeous, and in looking at it on the special I like the chrome against it better than the black also. Can't wait to see your finished product.

Alas to me, the Mineral Green not only spoke it shouted. This was mine less than 24 hours after it left the truck. (Ignore the ugly bastard standing in front of it).

That is an amazing color. Ypu don't see a lot of bikes that color either.

Nice bike, I really like that green but I haven't been able to see one in person to see if it was really for me. My dealer has reef blue/black inbound with my name on it so that's what I'll get.
