    So my 2005 Bulldog has same flat looking covers as you flaky ones [S&S 117 cu motor] They are on top of my S&S motor so I assume were made by S&S. Are you saying they are not S&S . ???? I am a tad confused. The new replacements I agree do look better. So am I right in thinking you just unbolt the box and the top cover and order a different type that is totally compatible with my 117 cu motor direct from s&S??

    image.jpg Many have seen pics but I had my boxes stripped and polished.

    Mike Lamb stripped the old chrome off then polished the cast Alu. Mine look better now than new chrome ones (the finish I mean)
