Gidday Paul 4565 ... like others are saying you get what you pay for ... but ... some of that China stuff is getting better ... i went with the Advan Black Stretched Bags and Stretched rear guard as well as some liners and the Colour match was spot on .
I`m a bit fussy and there were what i called swirl marks in the bag surfaces paintwork but had them polished out by professional , and bloody perfect ... and not that it matters but ALL the bags were painted unlike Factory bags where in the back part where you don`t see are not .
Now i don`t think i got any preferred treatment but someone here said they were only a little bit cheaper ... mine were Bucket loads cheaper than Factory ... at least half the price of Factory and that included shipping as well ... mind you i might have got a jacked up quote from Factory but all i know is they look great and they were heaps Cheaper .
Will try and post a couple of pics for you to see Colour match ... Bags and lower rear guard are Advan Black ... Bag Lids and side covers and Tank of course are Genuine Factory .
This is before the stretched rear fender .
After the fender fitted ... with my bag blades on as well , just under the lids ... those things are amazingly bright .
And the good old side view .
I still like my Black Harley`s but this sure does pop in the Sunligt ... what Colour were you looking at for your lower Fairings .
