As most of you who frequent this blog know… I am a huge fan of the bare-bones Harley-Davidson Knightster and Iron 883. These bikes get me excited not only because of their retro-killer looks but also because they target younger riders and provide some of that intoxicating Harley mystique at more reasonable prices… and continuing in that vein, Harley-Davidson just announced a new addition to the Dark Custom series.

The 1200cc Forty-Eight is another old-school vibe Sportster but this one has even more retro features like… a 1948 style 2.1 gallon Peanut Tank, under bar mirrors, forward controls,  FAT front end with FAT MT90 tire plus a low solo seat and suspension. MSRP is $10,499. CLICK HERE for more details and be sure to check out the video below.
