Dazco. Sorry. I thought it was black with white stripe. I have not seen that. I have seen the blue white which is a great looker too.

Someone DID put the same wite stripe on a black one tho, and i gotta tell you it looked magnificent. Easily the best looking paint on a bird to my eye. But i'd never have a black bike or car....much too hard to keep them from looking shabby unless you don't mind having a buffer grafted to one of your arms, cuz you'll need it that often.

Black with white stripe - Pepe le Pew !
Now blue with white stripe - swift as a Blue Jay.

Man, you are spot on with that. I took my Tbird to a ride in VA this past weekend. There had to be more than 2000 bikes there. 99% of which were Harley's. And I was AMAZED at all of th epeople who had on the doo rag and vest. I nearly felt out of place.

BMK9251,

Be sure to let us know when you pick it up!

Don't be surprised if there are a few weird noises at first Just crank that throttle and have a ball!
