Vehicle Description

2010 Harley Davidson SoftailCustom

The Harley-Davidson Softail was designed in the early 1980s. It all began when Harley-Davidson acquired a motorcycle concept designed by mechanical engineer Bill Davis. Davis had been experimenting with the design of hidden rear shock absorbers on a large framed motorcycle with a V-twin engine. In 1982, Davis sold his design patents to Harley-Davidson. He would then work alongside Harley-Davidson engineers to perfect the design. Harley-Davidson released the FXWG Wide Glide in 1980. This model was successful, as were most models in the FX family. When designing the first Softail, Harley-Davidson used the Wide Glide as inspiration, due to its recent success. The original H-D� hardtail lacked rear suspension, which made long drives uncomfortable. In the Harley-Davidson Buyer's Guide 1984-2011, by Peter Gantriis and Dain Gingerelli, it states that during this time, it was common for builders to customize motorcycles. Gantriis and Gingerelli further explain that, for this reason, many aftermarket companies tried to solve the rear suspension issue by installing traditional "plunger"-style suspension systems.

For consignment, a 2 owner, 14,490 actual mile bike that not only has the "look" thanks to tons of extra chrome, but also can back it up with a big bore kit installed in the V-twin powerplant. This bike shows beautifully thanks to the efforts of the consignor, always well taken care of and obviously in a climate-controlled garage.

Exterior
This 2010 Softail is draped in all black which is offset perfectly by the massive amount of added chrome accessories. From stem to stern it's nothing but good looks with chrome wire spokes for the front wheel and a saw blade style aluminum wheel on the back,mostly obscured by the add-on black leather saddle bags. Some white pinstriping wraps around the sides of the fuel tank and gives the perfect backdrop for the eagle in motion Harley Davidson painted logoing. Chromed telescoping forks up front and a coil over rear suspension provide the smooth ride as does the black leather shod seat with room for 2, and a sissy bar on the back keeps your woman right where she belongs. Disc brakes are on front and rear. A small round chrome trimmed gauge pod, with indigo backlighting, keeps the rider aware of all vitals and looks snappy while doing so.

Drivetrain
1585cc's for this Softail version with a big bore kit thatcost our consignor a princely sum of $5,000 and is fed by EFI. A 6-speed manual transmission sends power to the rear tire via a belt drive set up. Chrome headers and piping add to the bling factory and create a mechanical melody for all to hear.

Ride-Ability
An great ride to say the least, it fired right up and off to the test track where it was realized I can still manage to ride on 2 wheels. Good acceleration, excellent braking and precise handling make for one cool ride...even I managed to look cool while on my ride.

Here is your opportunity to get onto a turn key bike for a great price. All the hard work is done, just flip the switch and go, as long as the belt don't break
