Harley Davidson 1200 Custom

This beauty retains all its original Sportster® credentials but with a bigger 1200cc engine, a fatter front tyre on steel laced wheel, a broader, flatter custom tank and a two-up seat.

A beefy front end, wide triple clamps, big fat tires on Chrome 5-Spoke Cast Aluminum wheels; the Sportster® 1200 Custom combines all the agility and kick of a Sportster® model with the big, fat attitude of a custom cruiser.

Clean styling lines, chrome trim and eyebrow and a stylized LED taillight combine with a fat, strong stance to give the 1200 Custom an “in- your-face” presence. The front-end suspension and geometry work together to provide truly balanced handling.

With the H-D1™ factory customization process, customers can personalize their 1200 Custom with seat, handlebar, foot control, wheel, security, paint and engine finish options straight from the factory. The Sportster® 1200 Custom proves, once again, that NO ONE does fat custom like Harley-Davidson.
