– 2003 Harley-Davidson FXSTDSE Screamin’ Eagle Softail Deuce

The FXSTDSE sports a custom Centennial Gold and Vivid Black paint, baring its soul with a deep luster carried right down to a color-matched frame. Accented with pinstripes and Gold Leaf graphics that stretch across the tank and front and rear fenders, this bike is ready to hit the road.

Every one of the 1550cc’s in its Twin Cam engine demand that you take it out for a ride. The fuel injected Big Bore Twin Cam 95™ cubic inch powertrain, finished in gleaming Silver and Chrome, provides the power you crave, right from the factory.

But custom paint and exclusive features aren’t all that makes the FXSTDSE unique. Only a limited number of these will ever be produced.
