    Can anyone tell me if this is a factory limited edition color combination for 2005 Heritage Softail Classic. I know it it not a standard color for 2005.
    Bought this bike from a dealer for my wife this weekend, Never gave a thought that it was not a factory paint job. I have seen teal and cream factory paint before.
    Paint and decals look and feel excellent in everyway.
    I have looked on the internet for hours with no luck finding anything like it.

    Thanks for any information you may know.

    I'm afraid I can be of NO help on the info as to whether it is factory or anything else, but THIS I CAN tell ya... that is a fine looking combo! It should have been a choice, if it wasn't!

    Maybe a call to H-D Customer Service is in order? They were very helpful and patient with my questions!

    Best of luck! Ride safe and ENJOY!

    OK, I have to go with the obvious.... Your wife is one lucky woman to receive such a wonderful bike! It is beautiful. I'm considering painting my Deluxe and this is a color combo that would certainly be in the running.

    Sorry I'm not of help though.

    Thank you NEWHD74FAN
    I have tried the vin decoder, it does not specify paint.
    I am going to try MOCO customer service, Just to see if they can possibly tell me how it left the factory.

    Like I said the paint is in excelent condition, I just was looking for future needs and curiosity.




    Thank you Lucy , The wife loves it. when mama's happy everyone is happy.

    I am pretty sure that when I asked a dealer about my bike, they could tell me the color it was when it left the factory. Good luck.

    Just a follow up on this question.
    I contacted HD customer service and they informed me that the bike was black when it left the factory.

    Thanks for all of the help and comments.
