Front fender trim for 1957 - 1958

Hello all, just curious how much of a needle in a hay stack is this going to be to find. Collecting pieces to put my 58 back the way it should be. I have the 59 style trim on there now but would it should have the plastic trim any idea? Thanks In advance Bob

A couple of years ago, I bought two of them from Zanotti Motor Co. (a Harley Dealer) for $19.95 each. Bet they still have some left. They are at 170 Pittsburgh Road in Butler, PA 16001 Phone is (724) 283-2777, and the part # is 59215-57T

If they don't have any, ask them to look in their world wide Harley parts inventory and find another dealer that has them left over. Seems to me there was a few of them around at different dealers.

Bob...

Depending on where you live, if you're interested they are probably still available in Louisiana, New Jersey , New York, and S. Carolina dealers. Let me know if this interests you and I'll give you their phone numbers.

Fixman 55pan first of all thanks. I called the place in Pa and they were out . So they gave me numbers for the four shops that 55pan listed and missed three in South Carolina by 2 days(go figure). The HD shop gave me the guys name and I have been trying to reach him.I'm still searching HD shops. Seems the ones that harley has where made for them by Custom chrome. I haven't had a chance to call them yet. Hopefully I can get one. Bob

Bob, the ones I got from Zanotti are distributed by Eagle Iron for HD. They have an Eagle Iron date of 11/92. They were originally made in Taiwan (no big surprise here). I am told that the T at the end of the HD part number denotes "made in Taiwan."

Bob...

Do a Google search using the part number only and you'll find a few more places that might have them.

55pan I tried that yesterday. I think my only hope is the guy that bought the three if he will part with one. I'll keep looking. Fixman are these trim pieces decent ? do they fit good or like other jap pieces? Bob

I am really not sure how they fit, I still have a fairly decent one on my bike. They are in the factory packaging, and look to be a quality piece. The two stainless ( I think) screws and lock nuts are in the package. Depending on where you live, I will sell you one for about $30. Cost me $20 plus shipping. I ship UPS only. If you want one PM me at kvfixman@comcast.net.
