– 2006 Harley-Davidson FLST/I Heritage Softail

Everyone loves a clean-looking bike. The Heritage Softail® is a fine example. A motorcycle gleaming with simplicity. With a machine this pure, it’s only fitting we start with the heart and soul. Get a good look at the silver powder-coated Twin Cam 88B™ engine. It’s rigid-mounted and counterbalanced. Next feast your eyes on the hardtail styling. Any paint color you choose will look great with the machete tank graphics. A horseshoe oil tank and Laced wheels complete the no-nonsense look. The price is stripped-down, too — it’s the most affordable FL model. There’s even a detachable passenger pillion. Sometimes the less you see on a bike, the more there is to admire.

FLST/I Heritage® Softail

The reintroduced FLST/I Heritage Softail offers the elemental styling traits of the Softail platform – hardtail styling and a rigid-mounted engine – with the classic Harley-Davidson FL “large” front end and wrap-around FL rear fender. The Heritage Softail comes equipped with laced steel wheels, a silver powder-coated engine with polished covers, and floorboards with a heel-and-toe shifter. A new seat design includes a quick-release passenger pillion that can be removed in seconds, leaving the rear fender uncovered behind a solo seat. A four-bolt rear-fender support attachment design makes it easy to add optional saddlebags to the Heritage Softail, and maintains a clean look when the bags are removed. Offered in four different solid colors, the Heritage Softail features a distinctive new broad- stripe tank graphic. Chrome Aluminum Profile Laced wheels are available as a factory-installed option. A satisfying motorcycle in its own right, the Heritage Softail also offers itself as a starting point for a rider planning extensive customization with Harley-Davidson Genuine Motor Accessories.
