Wait till we start talking about rocker boxes. My Nightster 1200 had a gray engine with polished rocker boxes. My Iron 883 has the black engine with black upper rocker boxes, polished lowers. On a side note I noticed that all sportsters manufactured in January 19' or later have hex bolts on the rockers instead of the allens.

Thanks for the info and everyone's help. As a token of my appreciation, here's a link to Mason Ruffner playing Gypsy Blood: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SktEvDB-SuA If you don't know this song, it's in the blues-rock, SRV, George Thorogood vein. If you do know this song, you'll probably want to hear it again, it kicks ass.

Triumph tried that on the X75 Hurricane and it looked great

Values for those have consistently risen if you can find one for sale

If it ain't broke, don't fix it (especially if you don't know what you're doing). Most Sportster problems are owner-induced.
