This year Harley-Davidson Motor Company Inc. is celebrating its 115th anniversary after Harley and the Davidson brothers joined forces in 1903.
Apart from holding celebratory events in Milwaukee and Prague to commemorate the great milestone, Harley-Davidson will also be marking the occasion by producing limited edition, serialised anniversary motorcycles, which will be available for the first time ever with specialised designs, an anniversary eagle, and special anniversary paints, to be available on nine models, including a one of a kind CVO Anniversary model. These models are destined to become collectors’ items.
As a play on the classic look, Harley-Davidson is presenting the Legend Blue and Vivid Black two-tone paint set, featuring a triple pinstripe which follows the motorcycle’s contours from front to back. The Tri-Glide Ultra and Ultra Limited feature the words; ‘115th Anniversary’ on the side of the TourPak, in line with the pinstripes.
The tank features a detailed, multi-medal cloisonné medallion incorporating an eagle grasping the Bar & Shield in its talons. This stunning level of detail is only found on the Legend Blue and Vivid Black anniversary bikes. The anniversary theme is further intensified with the Legend Blue Denim paint which complements both the chrome and dark finishes to these limited edition models. This paint scheme allows for bold tattoo-like graphics which stretch asymmetrically across the top and right side of the tank or fairing, always including ‘Harley-Davidson’ in script on the tank’s left side.
The exclusive CVO Limited gets the anniversary treatment with darker Odyssey Blue Paint including a hand-painted metal leaf effect, pinstripes, colour-matched inner fairing, and a special anniversary edition tank medallion.
The Heritage Classic model is due to arrive soon at the Fapi Motors showroom in Attard. Fapi Motors Ltd is part of parent company, Famalco Group and a division of Famalco/Building Businesses.
