Harley-Davidson FXS Blackline Softail - Click above for high-res image gallery
The minds at Harley-Davidson
have just unveiled the newest creation to arise from the company's Dark Custom project. Called the FXS Blackline, the new take on the Softail wears resculpted tin, including a bobbed rear fender and an asymetric tank design that departs a bit from the bike's standard look. Get a little closer and you're likely to notice that the big V-twin at the heart of the Blackline has been powder coated black in all the right places. HD's designers also dropped in a compact headlight and a tiny speedometer for more custom look.
Of course, this particular Softail is defined by two things. First, Harley-Davidson says that the FXS Blackline wears the lowest seat that the company has ever installed on a bike. The rider sits a mere 24 inches off the ground, and combined with unique "split drag" handlebars, the Blackline looks to have a personality that's a good deal different from the rest of the Dark Custom creations.
