1200C Sportster 1200 Custom
When the Sportster® was introduced in 1957, riders didnt just get a new
motorcycle. A whole new reason to ride was born. Instead of merely covering ground, here
was a machine that extracted sheer, unadulterated thrills from every inch of the way. The
Sportster made a habit of smoking everything on the street. And it looked the part. The
lean, street-fighting style was undeniable. It still is. More than four decades later, the
Sportster has the distinction of being our longest running model. Although much has
changed, the thrills come through as strong as ever. The reason is simple. No other
machine does a better job of getting you right to the pure heart of the sport. Open the
throttle, and the surge of low-end torque packs an instant wallop. The narrow, agile frame
makes riding a joy, whether the action takes you stoplight-to-stoplight or down a twisted
country lane. There are now six models to choose from, plus Genuine Motor
Accessories just for your Sportster, so its easy to suit your ride to
individual tastes. Just as long as your tastes include excitement.
DYNA GLIDE MODELS
Dyna Super Glide
Super Glide Sport
Dyna Low Rider
The original Dyna Glide® made its debut in 1991, and it was immediately at home
anywhere there was pavement. A riders motorcycle. At its heart was a two-point
rubber mounting system that soaked up engine vibrations for as far and long as a rider
cared to go. The going was very good. For 1999 it gets even better. The all-new Twin Cam
88 engine now powers the Dyna Glide chassis. Its everything thats always
been good about a Harley-Davidson® V-Twin, only more so. Eighty-eight cubic inches of go.
The rest of the bike is refined as well for 99. The engine and transmission get a
more rigid interface, for example. As a result the ride feels even better, especially in
curves. The ignition is a new single-fire (no wasted spark) design. As always, we finish
it up with a clean belt final drive. Anyone who likes to ride hard is in for a treat. Of
course, sooner or later youll also owe it to yourself to park and give your eyes a
turn. The bikes in the Dyna Glide family drip with style. To complete the effect, we offer
Genuine Motor Accessories. And why stop at the surface? The internals of the new
engine are beefed up to handle enhancements. Try some Screamin Eagle® performance
parts. Your local dealer will set you up with everything you need.
FXR. For years it stood for more than a series of long, low road-going
motorcycles. More like a genetic code. A ride that could take over your lifetime. So be
forewarned. For a limited time, it's back. A few very lucky riders will once again feel
the pull of an eighty-cubic-inch Evolution® engine in the vibration isolation-mounted FXR
frame. Take a look. The unique handlebar set on curved risers. Custom Badlander® seat.
Mini-rail backrest. Profile Low Suspension. Chrome bullet headlight. Just the sight is
enough to spoil you for life at home. The grips, pegs, mirrors and flat lens turn signals
are special. Even the finish is special. What isn't covered in brilliant chrome, is
covered in Arresting Red or Stone Cold Blue. Colors created just for this motorcycle. The
new FXR². Here today. Who knows where tomorrow.
FXR2 available in the U.S. only.
Heritage Softail Classic
If youve ever found yourself face-to-face with a Harley-Davidson® hardtail from
the '40s or '50s then you know why we built the Softail®. The classic, uncluttered
American style has urged on many a romantic adventurer, and inspired motorcycle design for
more than half a century. The Softail family brings it all back, in a series of modern
machines that have set the standards for styling throughout the '90s. In the next pages
youll see how authentically some of the designs of Harleys® past have been
recreated. Theyre sparkling proof that a true classic doesnt age. But looks
only get you so far. The old hardtail earned its name. So part of the beauty of the
Softail is what you dont see. Hidden beneath the seat are two-gas charged shocks.
You dont see a rear suspension, but youll feel four inches of fully-adjustable
travel smoothing out those roads that may not be as refined as your Harley. Further proof
that a Softail is not some dusted-off antique comes the moment you feed the gas to its
Evolution® V-Twin. Weve continually updated and refined the motorcycle (youll
even notice a good-looking new five-bolt derby and timer cover for99). Youre
in for a ride that works as beautifully as it looks. Its the kind of ride
youll just want to take further. Which is why we also offer Genuine Motor
Accessories. They look right and fit tight, to take you as deep as you care to go
into the land of custom.
Electra Glide Standard
Electra Glide Classic
Ultra Classic Electra Glide
Road King Classic
Before introducing the Twin Cam 88 engine to the riding public we gave it 2 1/2
million miles of testing. Its a procedure some riders would love to repeat
themselves. A Harley-Davidson® touring motorcycle makes you think thoughts like that. The
new engine is a big change for our tourers. As you might guess, we did more than merely
bolt it into the frame. The end result is that everything about the bike feels great this
year, from the new horsepower pushing you over mountains to the way the bike sweeps
through turns. Of course, what was already good still is. Like the low center of gravity
that gives you great freeway performance, yet maneuverability at a crowded rest stop. The
engine rides in elastomer isolation mounts that eliminate vibrations. The front end
features our anti-dive fork, and the whole suspension is air-adjustable. Our touring
machines also include an accessories plug under the seat to simplify electrical hook-ups.
Which can only turn the mind to further enhancing your ride. You can brighten it up or add
more creature comforts with Genuine Motor Accessories. And if you like wrenching,
the new engine is built right for performance modifications. In other words, your dealer
has exactly what you need to create your own perfect traveling companion.
