    Leave it alone, I have a 65FL Winners Circle and It had several places on the front fender that I had touched up (many years before) and on my third judging (to make winners circle) I received a one point deduction for that. It wasn't a huge place and the first two times it was judged it was not noticed. I think the max reduction for repaint on a bike being judged as original is 6 points. If the saddlebags are considered an option they may not deduct but an 83 flh probably came with the bags as standard equipment so I am not sure. Just relating my personal experience and looking back I wish I had not done that.
