I just baught an '03 HD as well. I few key points you can look for are, VIN plate on the inside below the stereo in the the little storage area. Also, the HD have Harley Keys, ask for a picture of the key, it should have the ford symbol on one side, and the HD emblem on the other side.

Many of us HD owners were not big fans of the obnoxiously huge pinstripes on the 03's, nor the ignorant looking flames on the 02's and removed them as soon as we got home with our new trucks. If there is a black Eaton supercharger on the 03 your are looking at, and the HD interior is there then most likely you are looking at an authentic HD SCREW with a much more tasteful looking pinstripe-less exterior.
