Throw a leg over a Heritage Softail Classic, and just like that, you’ve bought yourself a one-way ticket to happier days. One look at the studded leather bags and you can’t help but grin. Beefy tires on optional Chrome Profile Laced wheels, graced by chrome-accented fenders. King-size detachable windshield. Low two-up seat with backrest. Giant chrome headlight and passing lamps. This is how the early dressers did it. Today’s version combines all this with the best of today’s technology. For example, the Classic gets a wrinkle black and chrome Twin Cam 88B engine with smooth-riding dual counter balancers. Fire one up and good feelings fill the soul.
Designed to offer comfortable touring accommodations with early dresser styling, the FLSTC/I Heritage Softail Classic features ample, 1950s-style leather saddlebags, the protection of a detachable windshield, touring handlebars and a comfortable passenger position with backrest. Laced wheels, passing lights, studded-leather trim and a full-skirted FL front fender over a fat Touring front tire complete a look that is truly classic, but also comfortable for the long road ahead. Chrome Aluminum Profile Laced wheels are available as a factory-installed option.
