Am trying to find out if its possible to make the finish on my Road Glide match my helmets; carbon fiber! I have seen cf inner fairings, but nothing yet on other parts.

Where have you seen it on inner fairings? I want a tank trim piece made of it for my Ultra.

I've seen it done somewhere. If I remember correctly, the painter uses a fiberglass woven overlay to spray the cross hatch pattern onto the black then clear over the top.

There are fake carbon fiber helmets. Some Goldwings have fake carbon fiber dashes. It's possible.
