    Does any one know if Black Lower Forks are available for Harley Tri-Glides? Harley has them available for the Touring bikes but not available for trikes.

    I was going to suggest disassembling the front forks and having them powder coated in black.
    I've done the luggage rack on my trike when I couldn't find an exact replacement.
    This stuff is tough and looks great.

    Are the fork lowers on the trike different than the touring lowers?

    Thanks for the info. I'll have to think about if it, not sure if it would look good powder coated compared to a vivid black fork. Harley makes the black forks for the touring model, however, they do not fit the trike due to the extended forks on the Tri-Glide.

    The shop that does powder coating has all different black, dull or satin, glossy and a super glossy. I know the shop that did the luggage rack had super glossy and that looks rich.

    Thanks for that info Trike Lady. We have a place that does power coating in the Milwaukee area and I will be contacting them. If I get it done I will post pictures.

    I've located for anyone interested a company called Powder by the pound and they actually carry the Harley Davidson Vivid Black. You may be interested in this and it's relatively inexpensive for the powder HARLEY DAVIDSON VIVID BLACK
