2004 Harley-Davidson FXSTD/I Softail Deuce

FXSTD/I Softail® Deuce® Model Overview
Since its introduction in 2000, the Deuce™ has garnered numerous media awards. Quite possibly because every part on this bike is unique. The sleek chrome front end could hang in an art gallery. The tank is long with a sculpted chrome console spanning end to end. The dragster-inspired rear fender is as original as it is clean. Reflector-optic bullet turn signals match the chrome bullet headlight perfectly. Then there’s the 17-inch rear wheel and 160mm wide tire. The Twin Cam 88B™ engine sends it all down the road in one fluid motion and dual shotgun exhaust announces its presence.
