I plan on getting an Electra-glide standard this coming saturday(if all goes well).

I really like the look of the black denim, and I like the idea of it fading with time "like a pair of denim jeans" but I have been unable to find pictures of what this fade will look like....

Does anyone have pictures of their EGs in black denim that have "faded". Or any other black denim for that matter.

Thanks.

I have a black denim vrod. I've had it for about two years now. It holds up fine. The funny thing about the denim is it is at it's dullest finish when new. With each passing wash or even dusting it gets a bit shinier.


Here's a pic.

Saw a black denim E-Glide Standard a couple of days ago at a dealer. Sweet looking bike. Hope it worked out for you. Like Ed, have a black denim VRSCDX here. My finish has stayed about the same the past two years. Followed a Milwaukee reco to use Harley Gloss on a denim finish, keeping it from looking too shiney.
