Cool Electra Glide Paint Job

I got my 2009 Electra Glide painted the brightest hottest red.



It's Dodge Viper Red.



There's a lot of extras I added when I got the paint job done.

I added Hogworkz Lowers.



I also added the Concho Fender skirt. Originally the fender said "Classic" but that's just the trim package. The Electra Glide Classic doesn't have lowers nor does it have lights on the Tour Pak but I added lowers and years ago I added lights to the Tour Pak. I no longer consider my Electra Glide a Classic. I removed the "Classic" labels and bought chrome labels for the fenders that say "Electra Glide".

The painter also added "Electra Glide" to the top of the Tour Pak.



I like the old school classic look. I bought these tank badges. Harley Davidson only used these in 1961 and 1962 but they still sell them separately.



That's a start but there's a lot more that I added over the winter.

Looks great. I love the tank emblems in the straight pipes with fishtails.

Painting the inner fairing is always a big improvement. I kept the stock radio but the speakers were cracking at higher volumes. The left speaker was worse, the membrane was cracked. I replaced the speakers with Hogtunes Speakers. I then added Hogtunes metal Speaker grills over the speakers. They look great but you can't really tell in this picture.

I bought Drag Specialities chrome trim for the gauges but the small ones didn't fit so returned them. I went to the Harley dealer and spent more on the ones they had. The trim from HDMC are very nice chrome. The 2 over the speedometer and tach don't match. Those 2 are metal but not the mirror like chrome of the Harley rings.

I also bought a chrome brake reservoir cap. The OEM cap was loosing paint around the edges.

The original rocker switches were in terrible shape. The sun was fading and cracking the plastic on those switches. Once again the Harley shop was really asking high prices for these rocker switches that did not hold up. Once again I tried to save money and went with Drag Specialities. They still cost $114 for the 3 switches. Time will tell if I regret my decision.

To the left of the rocker switches, where a 4th rocker switch would be is 2 push buttons. These are for my garage door openers. I added these when I first bought my Harley. The garage door opener is hidden in my fairing and I ran wires to the 1 buttons. But I got $2 puch buttons from Radio Shack. They were so cheap the cap quickly came off the buttons. I replaced them and the caps came off again. This winter I spent more time finding replacements. They have to be very small. That's a 1/4 inch hole they have to fit through. I when to an on line aviation store and bought 2 push button switches for $35.30.

Nice......your photographs remind me of photos taken in the 50's and 60's using the now "long gone" Kodak Kodachrome Film.
