Oh the Harley-Davidson Softail, how conflicted our relationship is. You have some of the best lines of a stock cruiser, mimicking the frame of a chopper and hiding your suspension underneath your chassis, but you also scrape around every corner I turn and have sort of crummy suspension. Regardless, this drag race style Softail was instantly enough to stop us dead in our tracks and think about just how much true style is worth.

Clip-on handlebars, full drag-style foot controls, a tiny little gas tank, and an all wooden seat make this bike one of the most unique Harleys at the show. Coming from 089 Garage, a shop local here in Italy, the bike looks like it would be a little difficult to ride around town, but incredibly fun to tear down a drag stip or a stretch of open road.
