Thank You Sir for making my pic larger. I just can't seem to get the hang of doing that here, even after reading up on how to do it.

That isn't my bikes original color, mine was white. It is a optional color Harley offered in the '76-'78 time frame for FLH's.

Well....it's atleast as close as I could get matching that factory color option. It's hard to pry the paint recipes out of Harley sometimes.

The 68 has changed a lot since this image last year. I'll post more once I get her back together with OEM wind screen and seat.
