Harley Davidson, often abbreviated to H.D. or Harley, was 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 engines, designed for cruising on highways. They are noted for the tradition of heavy customisation that gave rise to the chopper style of motorcycle.
This 1400cc Electraglide sport bagger with a West Coast sled look has been customised to look like an early Fat Boy Harley. This is a matching frame and engine number example. The former keeper serviced the motorcycle at 25,225 miles in 2013 after owning for several years. He then sold the Harley to the current vendor who has had it this in his eclectic collection ever since, the current vendor has covered less than 500 miles since purchasing the bike. The specification on this bike is comprehensive but includes Supertrapp exhaust, lowered rear with air suspension, stretched front and rear fenders, Fat Boy tank and Jessie James/Le Pera style gunfighter seat with Harley tag. Contained within the history file is a full specification list from the previous owner, and a user guide for any first time Harley owners, a V5C registration document and new MoT test certificate. This is a great looking bike and ideal for laid back cruising.
