perfect site ... no i don't think that's out there. some will be cheap but won't have everything you need. some will be expensive but have a much better selection.

i suggest getting the V-Twin catalog (or view online) and then ordering through SORGY's who happens to be a member here. he also deals with a couple other distrubitors from what i can tell.

that V-Twin catalog is awesome. there is a ton of s*#t in there.

If your looking for OEM parts try Chicago Harley. They provide a 20% discount on all OEM Harley Parts.

http://www.chicagoharley.com/shop/

As far as selection of After Market Parts you probably have the largest selection at J&P Cycles.

Agree ... no perfect one site. All you can do is shop around and find out what you like since not everyone carries the same products, and some are available only at certain companies.

In terms of customer service some are better than others. Mistakes are made, so if using e-bay check feedback ratings and comments.

You do have to shop around to find the best prices. DennisKirk.com is another place to check out.
