Long. Low. No BS. This Dark Custom™ leader is a minimalist throwback icon for today's freedom seekers.
The 2013 Harley-Davidson® Softail® Blackline® FXS model is a modern long custom motorbike with a minimalist, low profile and plenty of vintage Harley-Davidson parts. New for 2013, the Softail Blackline comes with optional Hard Candy Custom™ paint, a large metal flake paint finish that recalls the iconic styling of 1970s custom bikes, and offers blazing color showing through a deep finish. The H-D® Blackline model features a large air-cooled Twin Cam 103™ Harley® engine with 6-speed Cruise Drive® transmission, providing more power for passing, hill-climbing, and riding with passenger and luggage. The FXS Blackline features a rigid 'hardtail' rear suspension and narrow rear profile. This contemporary custom bike is slung low with an aggressive riding position that is both cool and comfortable. The Harley Blackline model is reminiscent of the glory days of Harley-Davidson motorcycling - the black headlight, slammed speedo mounted on the triple clamp, round air cleaner cover and black horseshoe oil tank are reminiscent of pre-war Harley parts and accessories; the fuel tank with small tank graphics are inspired by the 1977 Low Rider® motorcycle; and the black cylinders with gray heads and black rocker covers is a look you'd find on the Panheads and Shovelheads of the 1950s and 1960s. The 2013 H-D Softail Blackline model features a lot of blacked-out parts and not a ton of extras - everything is functional and ready for the road.
