Help again.

I'm attempting to rebuild my recently accident damaged 1986 FLTC Tour Glide Classic. Having trouble locating the stereo caddy to fit my ride.

Would prefer one in good condition. No cracks or breaks (I already have one of those). I will be repainting it to match so cosmetic issues and color match is not important.



If you have one for sale, or a lead on one, or a suggestion of an aftermarket one that will fit please let me know.

I thought I was going to be able to locate a new one but that's not happening with any dealers worldwide.

Thanks JtB.

Already sent them a parts request. I hit everything on Google today when I discovered Ronnie's had it listed but couldn't get it. Chris over at Ronnie's explained that after so many years it's hard to keep up the list of "only available" items. I understood but we still wound up negating about 2/3rds of my order.

I've already called Alaska and sent emails to 3 out of the country dealers too.

Hopefully the right footboard bracket I have to have can be found. I have my buddy at the local Harley Dealership checking on 2 available through there parts search.

I'm being hit with the reality that repair parts are getting slim for some of those 1 or 2 year parts from the 80's.

I may have to repair or machine some things myself to make do. SUKS! Good thing I have winter ahead to deal with all of this or I'd be telling them to total my bike and taking the money and putting it down on a newer model. And if I hadn't put so much into making it run real well I'd let it go. I have everything but a few items to be back on the road and hope to rebuild it.

Just got my settlement offer for the September collision and my '86 has been totaled. The appraised value of my bike came back at $6,123 (value prior to the accident) and the repair estimate was $11,297. Not sure what I'm going to do, but I'm certain I'm buying it back for $919.

A very generous forum member has helped me collect most all of the hard to get parts. I'm now considering repairing the unique existing fairing, installing the aftermarket caddy and new stereo I have now, and repainting to match, the replacement trunk I also have. Probably won't be investing much more to make it look perfect.

I had just gotten all the mechanical / electrical repairs in top working order about three weeks before the collision and fortunately it was more cosmetic body parts that were damaged than anything else. I'm hoping to start a new bike fund with what's left over.
