Harley Davidson Pandead 48

The Original 48



and now in 2010...here is the new model

Features include:

* A rubber-mounted, fuel-injected 1,200cc Evolution V-twin
* A 5-speed transmission
* 16 inch black, laced steel wheels (chrome is optional), with chopped fenders
* A one-piece, 26 inch high solo classic seat
* A low profile handlebar equipped with under-mounted mirrors
* Key blacked-out components

The Forty-Eight is based on the running gear of the Sportster 1200, but with 16” balloon tires (both front and rear are 150-section!) and wider-mounted front forks to match.

The front mudguard is a shorty-style guard mounted on a fork brace, and the rear mudguard is cut-down too.

As standard the 48 is single-seat with a low height of 710mm, and the indicators also incorporate the rear brake lights like the Nightster.

The mirrors are mounted under the handlebars for a sleek look, and the engine, air filter cover, hand controls and indicator bodies are finished in black.

Paint options are black, orange or silver.

It was beautiful when I was 5 years old and it is beautiful now that I am 67 years old. There a many motorbike brands that have "spirit". But no one can ever reach a Harley Davidson.

Give me the old one any day. That is real class. The new one is good, but just look at the beauty of the old one.

Just because the package may say 'new improved flavour' don't mean to say it is. Don't believe the hype, oldies have more syyle & class.
