    Recent rescue to an ex-ape hangers hippie style Superglide FXE1200

    Hello,

    This bike a 1978 FXE1200 has been heavily modified with great expensive parts as Barnett, Andrews, S&S while still preserving the original tins, motor, trans casing and frame. It was converted to a nice little bobber with a drag bars. Nonetheless, it looked good with a gold ghost flames paint job and some gold accents on the bike. Then it was sold to a hippie that got rid of the drag bars and installed huge ape hangers that looked really bad with the delicate lines of the bike. Once I bought the bike back I turned it down to as much original appearance as I could. Here are the results.

    Here I finished today another 1977 FXE 1200. This one was way to heavily modified to bring it all back and correct. Therefore I just made it look good.
    I wanted to match the 1977 FXS Gray color but unsuccessful in this try. Does anyone know the correct metallic gray color number for that model???

    I hope I will have way more opportunities to have those shovelheads bring back to the 'ol days classic looks, make them desirable and put them back on the road where they belong. I really enjoy this !!!
