    Why paint your bolts?

    I sell black stainless steel bolts on ebay.

    I've installed them on my own Iron.

    Paint will eventually flake off, the blackening on my stainless won't come off.

    If your interested just send me a PM. I offer forum members special prices.

    I agree it will come off eventually and your Iron is looking good. I did the same to an Iron i had a few years ago, the spray painted bolts looked fine.
    At the moment i`m just toying with a few bolts to see if i like the look.

    Thanks for the offer though.

    I guess it depends on how much abuse your ride gets.

    Thanks for the offer though.
    That's no problem,

    If any other members are interested in black stainless bolts, my prices start at £2.99 for handlebar clamp bolts. A full engine cover kit for a 2004 - up Sportster's is £30 and a full Twin Cam engine cover kit is £40, all prices include 1st class postage.

    I also supply bright stainless steel engine cover kits for 2004 - up Sportster's at £26.

    Anti-tamper seat mounting screw kits in bright or black stainless steel are £5, they come with a 2" long magnetic TT27 driver bit, 2 piece screw cover, two sizes of washer and a sealing rubber 'O' ring.

    Please message me with your requirements.

    Thanks Mark,

    I prefer the black on black look on the engine, it's so much better than being peppered with bright bolts.
    black stainless

    Here is a members handlebar clamp kit after installation sorry about it being upside-down.

    They look good, just make sure you don't get any petrol near that 'Halfords' paint.

    I had my Iron's fuel tank sprayed using Halfords paint and I accidentally spilled petrol on the tank when I filled her up, the petrol melted my nice new paint finish.

    I'm now having it resprayed using petrol resistant paint.
