Great “Body” – 1998 Harley-Davidson Springer Softail Custom

In America, Cruiser, Custom by Mathieu Guyot-SionnestLeave a Comment

Riding a motorcycle can have multiple purposes. Some use it to feel speed and adrenaline. Some use it to go from one point to the other quicker than a car. Some use it because it is easy to park. But ultimately, some use it for style. Makers like Harley-Davidson have proven their ability to produce bikes full of style, but for some riders it’s just not enough.

Historically, Harley-Davidson Softails have had a hardtail appearance because of the absence of suspension at the rear. Actually, the suspension is located under the engine and its transmission, permitting a very clean look. Bills Davis’ mid-70s design and frame-technology became an HD trademark. “Springer” is also the name given to these bikes having a big “spring” at the top of the fork. Sometimes considered as a “factory custom”, the Softail has always been a beautiful bike. To get more information about the history of the Softail, you can check Deadbeat Customs.

The Softail Custom presented here is truly one-of-a-kind, and it speaks for itself. The base is a 1998 HD Softail Springer with an engine that is claimed to be perfectly prepared and maintained. Said to have been created in France (yes, we are poets in France), the body of the bike represents a woman laid on the bike with the bust as a tank and her hands holding the front light. The suggestive position of the woman/body would make any rider wants her light its way on the road. More seriously, the seller indicates that he has owned the bike for 19 years and that he kept all documentation since the custom was built.
