Paint repair dropped bike

Just dropped my 06 road glide. Damaged rear saddle bag and front fairing. All paint scrapes. Any advise on where to take to repair in the San Francisco area. Color is chopper blue with black stripes, factory colors. Or can I order replacement parts from HD dealer already pointed. Any advise appreciated. Thanks. Bokchoi.

If it's just paint scrapes, order some touch-up paint. Apply sparingly in coats. Then buff it.

You'll have to look close to see the repair.

As for the only unanswered question.
Yes. Pre painted parts can be bought from the MoCo.
Only questions to you are.
1)How long are you willing to wait?
2)How deep is your wallet?

Dealer say HD wont paint new parts, to old color. They sell the bag and fairing new for 730.00. Guess I will have to find a shop to repair my old parts or buy new and have them painted.

Where's the OP at ? Paint shop we have here (Kaliber Collision) does perfect match Harley paint repairs.

You have insurance?
Take it to a Harley shop, they will order new factory painted parts, and install them... you pay your deductible.

I have insurance but have not called them yet. Trying to get ideas. Looked at front fairing and it is chipped with pieces missing from edge. Also mounting tab for fairing at speaker is broken. Inner fairing is chipped and missing small pieces. On edge. Right bag is scraped but not broken. Rear crash bar rashes. Guess I will call insurance soon and ask them where to go. Dealer here in Oakland charges 395.00 for estimate, but will apply if work done there. Some one said let dealer do it and they will replaced. All broken and scratched parts. Anyone had good results with dealer repairing paint damage. Parts guy told me cant order painted parts cause bike color to old. But this was at another dealer. Thanks for everyones replys.
