I like the painted oil tank. I assume the battery cover is painted as well? Thought about painting mine. Not sure if I'd go just black cherry pearl or the dual color like the tank and fenders with the black pearl too. Pretty pricey to do both plus the dual pin stripe colors

Believe it or not
When HD still had the color shop option,those covers were 130.00 painted for the pair !
A black cover was like 124.00 at the time !

Clever is best when the chin spoiler hides an oil cooler behind. It helps keep the front wheel from getting it completely filled up with squirrel guts.
Mount a oil cooler under it, drill a few vent holes and say it's good for the blood of her.

If it were that cheap now it would be done.
Still not crazy about the spoiler. It looks ok on yours tho. Maybe it's a balance thing with having the covers done. Not sure.
