New 2010 Harley Davidson Forty-Eight



Forty-Eight.
Well, when I saw the name I was sure hoping for a Panhead with a springer. Oh, well. Didn't I just build this bike two years ago? Ha! Not like I was the first one to ever put a mid glide and 16" front on a sporty, but I had to say it. Not into the hairpin solo seat on a swingarm bike, nor the decorated bits like ventilated heat shields, but I think it's got a nice stance for a new bike and that flat bottom tank is sweetalicious.

open bar at the NYC 'unveiling' was mmm mmm good. spent a few minutes with WillyG - sadly, 99.5% of the hipster crowd had no idea.

like the nighty and the iron this is "ok". I get what the moco is trying to do and maybe their hearts are in the right place, but I doubt it. They'll sell every one they make and dudes will love em and be out riding and buying parts from here and other shops so thats the silver lining

looks like it has a bit of a longer wheel base which is cool. Just as long as we dont have to hear about how it was inspired by post ww2 vets coming home and wanting adventure that only harley could provide. I swear if they use that story on one more model ill lose it

Harley just put this on their website today. It actually has a shorter wheel base.
