    Does anybody know a paint code or brand of paint as an alternative to Harley's "Silver bead blast touch up paint"? Unfortunately I can't buy it local anymore & the US Harley dealers won't ship to Australia.

    Spero,

    Seems as though steelo has dobbed me in here (smile)

    Not sure what I can do because it most likely is a postal thing rather than HD - yeah I am defending Harley for a change.  All I could do would be to give HD a call and see if they can't offer an alternative.

    Have a look at this - you might get lucky if you trust ebay:


    Or better still - try these guys a HD Shop BUT independent of HD:

    Spero -

    I just had a thought - if you have a sample of the Silver Bead paint you should be able to take it to a "good" paint shop (auto collision type) and they "should" be able to match it then make it for you.  Might be a bit more expensive but at least you will get what you want, and it may not be too costly if you only want a small amount.

    Can't say for sure that "body shops" in Oz can or will do it, but I have had it done here in the past for auto colors I didn't know the name or number of.

    Hi Wombat, I appreciate your input to my question, the eharleyparts.com lead was a good one but unfortunately our shit $ against yours & shipping it works out at just under $85 Aus for the 1/2 fluid oz bottle which is a bit pricey. I think I’ll go with your suggestion & take an engine cover into a local panel shop & see how they go matching it..
    Thanks again, Spero..

    No problem mate, any time.  Jeeze, $85 Oz for 1/2 an ounce - that's ridiculous - $60 (AUD) shipping is outlandish.  Hope the matching works out better for you, let us know how it goes if you would.
