    Ditto on ebay. You should be able to find some much cheaper than the Motor Company.

    I kept Looking on E-Bay and found OEM Lowers with all mounting brackets for $280...When I got em they had a small scratch on the bottom where You won't look anyway...and the guy showed it on the auction...I'm happy with them and I can't wait to drive the 2008 Street Glide with em on there...

    Those look absolutely awesome. Wonder how they compare to the OEM lowers with the HogTunes speakers in them. The aero look of them is pretty impressive too.

    I went through the same decision process when looking to add a tour pack to my Street Glide. Initially turned off by the cost of an OEM one from HD. But the more I scrutinized the aftermarket ones, the more I realized the quality just wasn't there.

    When adding something to your bike that's as highly visible as a tour pack or lowers, I just don't think you can go wrong sticking with Harley parts. The colors will match perfectly and the item will absolutely be an integral part of the bike's look, not appearing to be an add on.

    Now, if you're customizing the look of your bike anyway and don't care if you stray away from the "showroom Harley" look, then by all means explore your other options.

    The other reason I went with the HD tour pack was that I feel in the long run, OEM parts will add to the resale/trade value of your bike more than aftermarket parts will.

    Would a set of HD lower fairings from a 2007 Ultra Classic fit my 2006 Street Glide?
