That's the one. But since he only ever posted on the Forum twice, and hasn't been on here in nearly a year, you might be out of luck.

Apparently the link has changed since this was first posted; I can only find paint colors up through 1978. I have a 1979 XLH and a 1982 FLH. I don't think the codes would do me a lot of good, but I'd like to know what colors were offered back then, and whether they were a metal flake or not. My FLH has been repainted an emerald green pearl, and I am curious as to whether anything like that was available then. I think the XLH was a dark blue (judging from inside the side cover). Thanks.
