Who to paint?
« on: March 29, 2020, 01:40:01 PM »

So, I put my bike in the trailer last night after a wonderful day of riding. Set in my condor, closer the door and went fishing. Go out this more to find it on it's side. Fairing and saddle bag paint scuffed bad and gas had leaked all down the tank ruining the paint. My 05 Cherry looks rotted. Now I need either someone to fix (repaint) the paint. Who should I get?  Figure it's not something my local body shop will be able to do.

I would assume this would be an insurance claim? If so let them look at it first. Most  Insurance companies will not repair and paint a Harley due to costs etc it and will replace with pre-painted new parts. Due to age you have a problem there but either way let insurance inspect it and if you have a repair facility let the adjustor know and he/she will work with them. Makes a easier more seamless deal that way.
When that was my job I always liked it when the owner already knew who he wanted to do the repairs. Two things, One I had not been part of the decision process and if they did a crappy job it was between the owner and shop and two the shops are more used to dealing with insurance company and my involvement was minimal.
Choose a GOOD shop or let the insurance company offer suggestions, remember if they make suggestions they have some liability in quality of repairs.

Dude ,   I feel for ya brother.   Please share if you can what went wrong with the condor.   I just purchased a condor myself recently and now you made me afraid to use it. 

Thanks.

No clue what happened with the Condor. It has been Rock solid and I can't lend blame to it. We had bad storms last night and I'm sure the wind rocked the trailer but, that shouldn't have been the cause.

Well, "trust" your insurance company and the Stealership, right? I just dropped it off at Chattanooga Harley. They said they "may" be able to get replacements from Harley. I told em good luck with that. I just figure if a just took it to a body shop, they have to figure out how to take it apart, put it back,,, maybe match paint maybe not. That and it's gunna cost me the same whoever does it.

I wouldn’t want a traditional body shop doing anything if they don’t routinely paint bikes.  I’d rather ship my parts to a custom painter than to trust an unproven local.

I am so sorry to hear As you have a great bike Brian .  As others have stated joe at extreme is great. 
Or look for a take off set.  If insurance is paying you may still be able to get new painted parts from Harley.  Good luck.   :cherry:

Check out what is on eBay that smokymtnboy posted.

Estimate for replacing parts came in @ $15,704. Not a snowballs chance of that happening. They will total it and I will loose a fresh built motor. Have to wait to see what the paint job will come up to.
