Harley Davidson Shovelhead Chopper

Harley Davidson Shovelhead Chopper 1979 swingarm build

Harley-Davidson New Softail for 2018

Harley-Davidson New Softail for 2018 – Harley Davidson Sport Glide

Harley-Davidson New Softail – 2018 Harley Davidson Sport Glide

This bike doesn’t do justice to the original, which had a fixed functional engineered fairing(albeit a little ugly), a ton of suspension travel and mid-pegs. It was also lighter. Had lower fairings too. It was a sporty touring comfortable corner ripper(for a Harley..). It’ll appease the wannabes. Not the FXR die-hards. Millennials in skinny jeans and shorty boots will flock to it. That’s the idea I guess….

I think Harley is killing it. If they could bring their prices down to at least within 15% of their competitors they’d probably do really well. Their older customer base wasn’t real good at math, but back then, even the mentally challenged could find good paying jobs. Younger riders making that kinda dosh with the all the info in the world at their fingertips are likely far better educated and less susceptible to Harley sales BS. Read more »
