– 2005 Harley-Davidson Softail Springer Classic FLSTSC

When the front end of a motorcycle knocks you right out of your socks, you know you’ve got something good. The new Softail® Springer® Classic. The Springer leading-link front suspension looks as good as it did on a ’48 Panhead™. And it’s just as ready to log some miles. The beach-style handlebar is wide and pulled back. There are big floorboards. The seat and console get leather detailing. A new passenger pillion detaches in seconds. And you’ll be bringing plenty of nostalgia along for the ride. Tombstone taillight. Crossover pipes, brought back just for this model. A metal strip with emblem around the tank. The patent badge gracing the oil tank for the first time in 60 years. It may take you back a ways. Not to worry, the potent Twin Cam 88B™ powertrain puts you right back into fast forward. You can get it in carb or EFI. But that’s not your only option. You can choose to sit there with your socks off, or see just how far our latest Springer motorcycle will take you.
