I've viewed and copied from imgur and flickr with ease, no adds to slow you down. Now I'm thinking.... what was I thinking using PB to begin with?

Just didn't know any better

I've created the pages in the gallery and moved the pics to the appropriate sections.
This is much more manageable.

Its 77 only thing for the CE edition. My decals are reproduction. New decals are several hundred dollars for NOS OEM. That car is one of the general Lee's from the show. Cooter, Ben Jones, has a store about 20 miles from me. I asked for permission to photograph with the Gen. Lee and he said yes.

Not many in that paint because they didn't sell fast in some areas for obvious reasons...lots were repainted at the dealer. Mine is actually powder coated . And a tribute , unless when i research the VIN, I find different. It is a 77XL survivor.

There were about 1052 XL(H) , 200 XLCH, and Some 1000+ BT low riders made. There were 100s of the Chargers used in the show. Ben Cooter Jones, has a couple and the rest are with private owners, that aren't in the museums.

Not that wiki is always a credible source, but Wikipedia claims much lower productions:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harley...onfederateP2-1

FLH Electra Glide = 44
Super Glide = 228
XLH Sportster = 299
XLCH Sportster = 45
XLT Sportster = 15
FLHS =15

Cite:
MacMahan, Chris (January–February 2009). "1977 Harley-Davidson Confederate Edition" (aspx). Motorcycle Classics. Topeka, Kansas: Ogden Publications. Retrieved 2012-12-11. "The Confederate Editions were built across the model range in irregular numbers including 44 FLH Electra Glides, 228 Super Glides (all FXEs with the 3.5-gallon “bread loaf” tank borrowed from H-D’s Italian Aermacchi cousins), 299 XLH Sportsters, 45 XLCH Sportsters and 15 XLT Sportsters."

I tried thru Chrome first with no luck. Using Chrome and the PB fix plugin, I can not even see a photo icon on the 1st thread you gave in that link.

But, using Explorer. I could see the icon on the thread, link to PB and get the 'no 3rd party' icon again. Changed some words around, found your 'bucket' pic, had to copy it to my account name, select it individually from there, right click and 'save as' to my pc.

Here's mine. I believe it's correct for a 1977.
