Harley-Davidson, often abbreviated to H.D. or Harley, were founded in Milwaukee,Wisconsin, during the first decade of the 20th century and was one of two major American motorcycle manufacturers to survive the Great Depression. The company today sells only heavyweight motorcycles with over 750cc, designed for cruising on highways; 'Harleys', are noted for the tradition of heavy customization that gave rise to the chopper style of motorcycle. The Harley-Davidson VRSC (V-Twin Racing Street Custom) family of cruiser motorcycles was introduced in 2001 in a single model called the V-Rod. The V-Rod was developed by H.D. to compete against Japanese and American muscle bikes. The 'V-Rod' made use of the Revolution engine, developed jointly with Porsche that, for the first time in Harley public production history, features overhead cams and liquid cooling. The V-Rod is visually distinct from other Harley-Davidson motorcycles and can be easily identified by the 60-degree V-twin engine and the radiator. A distinct difference between the V-Rod and all other Harley production motorcycles is the location of the fuel tank. The fuel tank on the V-Rod is located underneath the seat, placing the rider on top of it, rather than the usual frontal placement. The 'tank' in this case is simple dressing, hiding the frame.
This one owner Harley Davidson can only be described as stunning. Having covered a mere 4,600 miles from new, this fastidious owner has cherished the 'Screaming Eagle' always having the bike garaged and never using the motorcycle in inclement weather. The eyecatching paintwork of this bike has to be viewed to be appreciated. Supplied with a V5 registration document and a full years' MoT test certificate, this is a motorcycle to be enjoyed immediately.
