THE BEST Harley-davidson
Motorcycle maker Harley-Davidson is challenging its dealers around the world to show off their sweetest custom rides, many of which are being built with the help of local trade schools. Check out all of the bikes, and vote for your favorites on the project’s website.
iCollector is auctioning off a Harley-Davidson Fat Boy motorcycle that was used in the filming of Terminator 2. The motorcycle has seen better days, but it has only 392mi on it and was acquired directly from the movie’s production company. Clothes and boots not included.
Harley developed the MT500 in the ’80s for military use, hence its camo paint, gun case and ammo panniers. But it never took off, and only 500 were made. This particular bike has never been driven. It’s expected to fetch at least $20K when it hits the auction block on 1/26/17.
Harley continues to sneak modern tech into the Softail while keeping its classic style. The Softail Slim S has a 1.7L Twin Cam 110B engine that produces up to 109 ft.lb. of torque, an efficient 6-speed transmission and an optional retro army olive and black finish.
To arrive at the design of its B-Rocket watches, B & R first designed a custom aviation-influenced Harley-Davidson motorcycle which served as inspiration for the watch faces. Seems like a roundabout route, but both look great.
