Do you know why it doesn't have the original SE dash?

No idea. It was already switched in the ad from California in 2011, so I guess it was done at least ten years ago. I plan to take the dash off and check for damages to the tank before I start searching for an original dash. Maybe the original owner dropped something and made a scratch, and felt he had to cover it up...

It and that big horn cover you see.  Part of the fad 15 years ago.  I think Harley made the original dash obsolete a couple years ago also.  If that's correct just have to watch for used that's either good or good enough to be plated. 

The 1550 rear fender emblem placed up high isn't normal either.  That emblem belongs down low on the fender below the license plate.  With the solo seat installed I've done the same thing though.  Using the emblem to cover the rear mount hole for the seat and with the huge rear plate his MoT requires it's not like you could see the cool 1550 emblem down there anyway.  So might as well move it up where you can enjoy it.  Stuff like that is too anyone's individual taste. 

Would be nice to find a correct dash for it though.  Those were only used on the 02, 03 and 07 SERKs.  Always thought they were a good looking piece.

Was there anything special with the horn cover on these bikes, or was it just the standard horn cover that came on all bikes?

The 1550 emblem was moved by the previous owner here in Norway, and was done when the license plate relocation was done. As you say, you couldnt see it on the bottom of the fender anyways with the license plate covering it. So that's a nice mod I think.

I have a couple of used dashes in sight on the ebay, but will check the tank for possible damages first.

The seat you have now will not line up well with the narrow stock dash that originally came on your bike. So that is another consideration.

And.... sorry missed this, the stock horn cover is just the normal horn cover used for a million years on a bajillion bikes.

Thanks. Another consideration regarding new seat. Good to know.

Yes, most bikes had some version of that wide and normal dash with the nose of the seat formed to match.  The SE Road Kings had the different dash that was much narrower down at its tail with the seat sculpted ot match.  Your wide seat was bolt down ok.  It'd just look funny.  This pic is an 03 but it's the same dash.

Also, and not sure if you've got them or not, but there are 02 and color specific versions of the 1550 air cleaner, derby and timer covers.  The fender emblem you've already got.  Horn cover is normal stock if you happen to want that.  But it's all done to whatever you like best.  Unless you hate it the SERK dash is a nice looking part though.

I worked at the dealership when these bikes were new. Always loved that color! Great bike!

I have all the color specific covers so no problem there.

I really want to get my hands on the correct dash but I guess I'll have to wait until I get a new seat as well. I remember reading something in your thread about some seats not matching the dash very well.

The seat/dash mating is pretty obvious after you've seen on.  The SE Road King dash is narrow down where it meets the seat.  The seats that look better next to it don't have that wide and flat nose out on their front end but instead are tapered in some to meet the narrower dash.
