We work with a local custom paint shop. They do all kinds of painting and can fill special requests, but specialize in factory color-match, including CVO. Paint is show-quality with polished polyurethane clear coat. Note: Paint typically takes 3-5 weeks (less in fall/winter, longer in spring/summer).
In order to match your color, in most cases all that we need is the name of the primary colors as Harley defines them (such as "Vivid Black" or "Suede Green"). For pinstripes we just need to know the thickness (either 1/16" or 1/8") and general color. When ordering a painted fairing through our web site there is a section at checkout where we gather this information from you, or we can always do it over the phone.
Don't know your color(s)? Harley puts a white sticker under the tank on the right side just above the air cleaner that shows the factory colors (see photos above). If you're lucky it will still be there and you will be able to read it. If not we can usually figure it out by model, year and general color (often there is only one shade of, say red, for a given year and model, or if there are 2 it is easy to tell the difference as one is bright and the other dark red.)
For 2-tone paint our standard style is like the 2009 Electra-Glide shown above, with the colors reversed as compared to the tank as you go from the top down (black on top of the tank, but silver on the top of the fairing in the photo). As standard we paint the inner fairing to match the color of the top of the tank. That said, we can do whatever you like so don't hesitate to make special requests. Harley has changed some of their 2-tone styles in recent years and we have done some of those styles as requested by customers. Let us know the style you like (if different from our standard way) and we can match it!
Note: CVO paint is done by hand at the factory and there can be some variance from bike to bike, even when they are the same color. Therefore we require a part off the bike to match against for CVO colors. On Road Kings the easiest part to remove is the side cover, on many other models it's the front fender.
