Default Trunk Latches

Did Victory make any XC trunk latches in black? My bike is almost completely blacked out.

I'm pretty sure they don't, because the blacked out bikes were/are just XCs, not XCTs, i.e., no trunks.

I could be wrong, of course, in which case I hope someone corrects me. But as the owner of '12 XCT, I've been observing the blacked-out bikes, because I like them. I went through my chrome period on a Valkyrie Interstate from 2000 - 2007, and now, on the XCT, I have black mirrors, levers, handlebars, and trunk rack, for instance -- sort of a hybrid from the stock chrome and black replacement or add-on parts.

So, I'm guessing that you'll need to send out the stock trunk latch to a powder-coater.

Cheers,

That's pretty much what I thought. The one exception may be the Cory Ness XCT since it's blacked out.

That's a good thought, and I had completely forgotten about that model.

However, I just checked it out, and it looks like the latches are still holdouts, i.e., chrome, even on that one. See http://www.victorymotorcycles.com/en...our/motorcycle

Thanks for the pictures. I guess I need to visit my local powder-coater.
