If you're in the US, Tom can get you anything Jan Boone has on his website.

Adam,
For any of Boons parts, try checking with his U.S. (hush, silent) counterpart, tomsnosparts. Tom is a good man (and a neighbor) and there probably is a good chance that he'll be able to put something together for you. Worth a try anyhow. Good Luck.

Geo.

If you are asking for yellow colored items for your pedals you will not find them as they were never used. Pedal pads were always black until some of the slip on type in white in the '60s. Some aftermarket ones have been made in red, but H-D never made or used any colored ones.

Yes Rubone you are right I know handlebar grips were an accessory in yellow but I don't know about the brake and clutch levers but have seen a photo of a 56 flh with yellow hand & lever grips, so I will have to keep searching, cheers Dave :( :roll:

Not sure about finding any shops that sell their products, but..... can you make something similair yourself using Yellow Plastic Dip.

I'm sure their process is more in depth but could you get the same basic result.
