1999 FXR2 tank.  Hard to get a camera to "see" the logo paint.  It 's sort of in 3-D to the eye.

Really sharp looking FXR2 you have there.  You don't see many of the FXR2,3, or 4's with paint other than factory.  I like that red color on yours...very deep.  I ride an FXR3 (custom painted also) and I like it much better than the factory paint.  

Sharp looking FXR.

You're right, FXR4.  That's factory (CVO) H-D "Arresting Red".  FXR2's came in this and "Stone Cold Blue", which is almost purple.

Oh yeah...I forgot the orignal paint scheme on the FXR2...then let me rephrase my original post to say I really like THAT factory paint.  I don't like the FXR3 or 4 factory paint too much, but that FXR2 is very sharp looking!!

FXR2, 3 or 4 factory paint:

My $.02 worth:  The paint jobs on these CVO FXR's is what makes them special.  As on all the CVO bikes, it's the "signature" feature.  After all, the rest of the chrome parts and accessories could be bolted onto any 1984-94 FXR, but those color schemes from the factory are what makes them truly special.  The FXR3 paint was inspired by the factory flame job as used on the 1980 Wide Glide.  Check page 68 of the 'Illustrated Buyers Guide to Harley Davidsons since 1965', by Allan Girdler.  It's almost identical and was quite remarkable for Harley in 1980.  The FXR2 paint really lights up in the sun and has a lot of depth with just a hint of orange if the light hits it right, and the HD logo appears and disappears sort of like a hologram depending on viewing angle.  I've never seen an FXR4 up close so I can't comment about specific traits.  Maybe one of the FXR4 owners here can.  I can say the graphics on it are completely unique from Harley to that bike.  These paint jobs aren't just a different color.

Don't take offense, KSims, because I have a soft spot for pearl white Harleys, and paint jobs are a matter of taste, but I just think that the paint is the one thing that instantly identifies a CVO bike.
