Ok well I just got back from the dealer(not the original one) and the guy explained it to me like this.. He said they put a list together of what you want and they submit it to harley, and they either accept it or reject it...and they don't know what's gonna happen until after they submit it. That still doesn't sound right to me. He said they've actually never ordered a custom bike like that for a customer. I'm gonna try one more dealer that's kinda close to me and see what they say. Like others have said, I'm not gonna settle. I know what I want and how I want it and if they can't get it for me then I'm just gonna have to keep trying different dealers until I find one that's willing to help.
And another question... What's the going rate for dealer fees that they tack on to the price of the bike? Every bike they had had at least 800 bucks worth of dealer set up fees broken down into 3 different categories.
The dealer fees are ussually:
Freights $335 to ship it from hd factory to the dealer.
Setup: $330. Uncrating bike. Mounting bars. Filling with fluids. Checking all fasteners. Touring they put on fairing and tour pacs.
Doc fees: $200. Dmv title, tag, lein fees. And any bank fees associated with your loan.
Atleast thats what my dealer told me when i bought mine. But they include the 1k service free. Swith purchase of new bike.
