Roll them Bones

sm_hd-crossbones-rs.jpg

Crossbones takes you back to the fifties, only with a light from the sixties, suspension from the seventies and a motor from the eighties …

The newest model in the Softail line of Harley-Davidsons is the FLSTSB Cross Bones, an old-style bobber with ape-hanger bars and a springer front end. 

Design cues hark back to the fifties and include a sprung solo seat (at a very low 676 mm height), fat tires on small spoked wheels (16" front and 17" rear), glossy
black springer rails and chromed springs, black bucket-style headlamp,
and bobbed rear fender.

Power from the rigidly-mounted Twin Cam 96B motor is fed through a six-speed gearbox to a rear wheel carrying a bulbous 200 mm wide tire. Dry weight is a claimed 317.5 Kg and available colours are black, dark blue, olive, and pewter.

U.S. price is $16,795.00 for the black with a $345.00 additional charge for colour (but then why would you want to do that?). We’ll have a Canadian price for you as soon as we do.

    Those are way cooler.

  2. Meh. Another parts-bin Harley, just a bit more cartoonish than most. Is there a fork – tire combination they haven’t tried?
