    One of the features that I enjoy on custom bikes is the blacked lower fork sliders and...on the Dyna Fat Bob as well. Does anyone out there know if such can be purchased aftermarket? I talked to my Harley parts guy and he could not determine if the motor company would ever offer those as aftermarket. So...I am looking for an alternative for my Street Bob.

    There's a number of places that can be found on the internet that do powder coating. Only thing is that the bike will have to be laid up until they turn them around and get them back to you unless they have an exchange policy.

    Do a Google search for powder coaters in your area or try here.

    Glider: Thanks, I appreciate the answer. I love the look but was hoping to avoid a lot of down time, especially now that the snow is starting to waver away and we can actually see pavement! I will check out your resource.

    Steve: thanks for your reply. I apologize for taking so long to get back to you! The roads are clear, but the weather here while warm last week has turned off cold with occasional spits of rain and snow and...I can't make myself stay in, I have to ride. If you are ok with this, what I would like to do is to contact sometime next year (when I am moneyed up again) and with your help, I will get the lowers I want. Will this work?

    Would be worth checking out if the Dyna Fat Bob fork lowers would fit on other forks. My guess is they would fit all the other Dyna's and likely other models as well. If so, you could just order a set right from HD.

    Steve: thanks for your generosity. And...like Glider said, it is appreciated. A brief riding report...it turned off warm and my riding pal and I hit the rode and put on 400 miles this last Saturday...what a ride, interstate, back roads, a rattlesnake catching some sun and lots of dust and bugs...

    But I love it regardless
