1998 HARLEY-DAVIDSON HERITAGE SPRINGER
We are offering for auction a magnificent all original recreation of a classic 1948 Harely-Davidson the Heritage Springer.
Harley reached back 50 years for inspiration from its most nostalgic model. With its Springer front suspension, hardtail-like rear end, 16 inch whitewalls, high headlight, dual fringed seat and saddlebags, split 4.2 gallon fuel tank with dual filler caps and dual fishtail mufflers, this bike captures the flavor of the 1948 Harley 74.
While the engine remains similar to the original V-twin panhead of 1948, it is now 6 cu in bigger, modern alloy cylinders, 5 speeds and electronic ignition. It still has some old “charm” by not having a counter balancer and no rubber on the engine mounts.
Though the bike recalls the Springer suspension, there some modern updates with the most important being disc brakes. The bike also has a rear suspension system. Using Harley's Softail configuration with the dampers laid out horizontally out of sight to maintain the illusion of 1948. Even the front now has a shock.
Owner believes mileage to be original showing 25,391 on odometer. Title reads exempt.
This bike has a great nostalgic look but with modern amenities.
