Founded in Milwaukee, Wisconsin during the first decade of the 20th century, Harley-Davidson was one of two major American motorcycle manufacturers to survive the Great Depression. Harley-Davidson also survived a period of poor quality control and competition from Japanese manufacturers. They are noted for the tradition of heavy customisation that gave rise to the chopper style of motorcycle. Except for the modern VRSC model family, current Harley-Davidson motorcycles reflect the styles of classic Harley designs. In Harley-Davidson motorcycles, the softail frame is designed to look like the hardtail bikes of the past whilst still offering the comfort of rear suspension. The shock absorbers are positioned along the axis of the motorcycle, tucked away under the transmission.
This Rocker C presented in unmarked brilliant blue with fantastic chrome-work and described as immaculate. Purchased new by the vendor from Lakeside Harley-Davidson and serviced by WARRS, this head-turning example is also offered with the private plate R005KER for maximum appeal and has been lavished with upwards of £5,000 of customisation. Accompanying this example is a full service history, all original manuals and V5 Registration document with an MoT test certificate valid until July 2015. All Harleys stand out from a crowd but this Rocker C would certainly steal any show.
