Saddlebag Lid Damaged

So....one of the lids was damaged. A small chunk of plastic was removed from a corner. The bike was custom painted Harley Redhot Sunglo with very subtle, dark ghost flames. There is one on the lid but not very noticeable. I'm checking with the painter on repairing it. I thought maybe I'd be able to find a used lid in the same color that will fit a 2008 Streetglide. I searched online/Ebay to no avail. Most are different colors or made for speakers, which I don't want. Maybe cheaper to buy one primed and have it painted.
I was wonder if anyone might have a source or better idea.

Thanks in advance.

I got lucky when I broke a saddlebag lid several years ago at a gas station. A pair of matching lids appeared on eBay for $100 each. (2013 schoolbus yellow with sparkles). I bought both of them.

If you're thinking about painting one to match, think about just buying a used on to fit and have a professional do the prep and paint. Might be cheaper than new from HD, primed.

Bud,
Ronnie's Harley shows painted ones in Crimson Red Sunglo HERE. but they don't show Red Hot Sunglo.

The 2009's lists Red Hot Sunglo HERE

and I found this ....

Here are the PPG codes for Red hot sunglow
Base; 922609
Candy; 922609-2

Any PPG suplier can mix these colors for you down to an ounce{most require a half pint minimum perchase}.They may also be available through Dupont,Diamont,Sikkens,Basf..I personaly have had the best results with PPG.Make sure you ask your local shop what paint line they use.Also, who ever paints your parst should be given a piece for comparisen.The base is the gold, the Candy top coat will change upon every additional coat.Nice to have a piece to match.

Thanks all! I found a lid in matching red hot sunglo. The original had a ghost flame so it doesn't match perfectly but will do until I'm ready to have it painted to match. I will need to have the fairing painted again too as a friend decided to do quick right turn without signaling. I traded painted with his fairing.
