    Default TANK DECALS 1972 FLH (Black)

    Anyone have a vendor that could provide the right tank decal for a black 1972 FLH; I beleive it's part #61146-72. The reason I mention the color of the bike is because the black bike tank decals are different than the other colors; they're red and blue under and over the tank emblem; instead of just black on the other colored bikes. Not really looking for NOS, would be satisfied with a reproduced decal. Putting this thread in "Shovelhead" too.

    Thanks
    Tim

    I have seen original paint black '72's with the black with white border tank decals, a good friend in NC has such an animal. I've also seen the tank decals to which you refer on both black and white bikes, I believe it was referred to as Sparkling America. Those also had the red, white and blue stripes on the fenders and were on both FX's and FLH's. I have a '72 Super Glice rear fender with such a stripe.

    If I am incorrect, someone please let me know.

    Also, here is an Ebay listing of an original paint black '72 with the black tank decals:

    I bought a full NOS set from Rick Simpson,(rdns@geneseo.net). I don't know if he still has some, that was a couple of years ago. But it is worth trying.
