    I'm going to pick up a 2008 Sportster 1200 Custom next week. It's my first Harley. I started on a Honda 90 back in 1965 so I've come a long way. I wondered if anyone could tell me the name of this paint scheme. All the other 2008's I've seen have the Harley logo as a metal tag on the tank.

    There is a photo of the bike in my album entitled Bike Shots.

    Thanks!

    From the 2008 Harley model catalog the dealers used to give out:

    If solid color, the red is Candy Red Sunglow.

    If two tone, Crimson Red Sunglow/Candy Red Sunglow.

    There is a photo of a Sportster in the two-tone and the Crimson Red is quite a bit darker. My guess is that yours is the solid Candy Red.

    And, welcome to the Forum.
