Description

  • Registered new 11 July 2016
  • One owner from new
  • Only 1,868 miles
  • Screaming Eagle Kit
  • Original Handbooks and wallet
  • Supplied with garage turntable

Grab a Harley Sportster 1200. Strip it back to basics. Add in some ‘50s & ‘60s hot rod, drag-strip style. Bring in modern, reliable tech; adjustable rear shocks, a ominous stance, a set of upside down forks, twin discs and ABS and you’ve got the new Harley-Davidson XL1200 CX Roadster. Where passion and history come to life. Get ready to ride.

Background

The only owner of this superb Harley-Davidson passed away recently, unexpectedly and abruptly. Our vendor Nick stepped up and paid the owner’s family what he paid for it. He simply wants to move it on.

  • Original Dealer invoice from Plymouth Harley Davidson
  • Factor fitted options
  • Screaming Eagle Super Tuner
  • Short shot exhaust pipes
  • High flow forward facing ‘Heavy Breather’ air filter
  • The Harley comes with a garage turntable thrown in and a H-D bag
Exterior

In factory option Vivid Black, this H-D is fashioned around the notion of a stripped-back-to-basic Harley Sportster 1200. This results in the Roadster having a super cool attitude. Harley’s ‘Dark Custom’ vibe means there is a blacked-out engine, black paint everywhere, black forks,  cut-down black mudguards and all-new cast spoke wheels. It looks stunning. In our view one of the purest, best-looking Harley Sportsters in all its 60-year history.

With twin front discs, a sporty riding position and those fat 43mm upside down front forks it’s the sportiest Sportster yet.

The distinctive ‘Peanut’ fuel tank is there. There’s a beautifully sculptured single-style seat, which will actually accommodate a pillion. Continuing the sporty café racer theme, the foot-pegs are more rear-ward intonated, chopped down front and rear mudguards, and a neat, multi-function single tacho dial which incorporates a digital speedo.

Engine and gearbox

The XL1200 CX, air-cooled, pushrod Evolution V-twin is had its capacity bumped by 30% The effect on power is obvious The quaking Milwaukee lump now puts out nearly 70bhp and 73ftlbs of torque

This gives it much more drive out of the corners. When out for a fun ride, you can just leave it in third gear and ride everywhere on a wave of torque. Being honest, that’s the most enjoyable way to ride it anyway.

The five-speed gearbox has a long, positive throw. You always know the bike has shifted. Final drive is by Harley’s usual, superb and largely maintenance-free, belt system. No more oily chains.

Ride

The 19″ rear & 18″ front wheel give the bike sweet steering in traffic. The bars are swept low and wide, giving it a semi-sporty riding position but easy to live with too.

In town it’s great. It’s out of town where the Roadster comes alive. It handles well. You can feel those fat upside down forks working giving great feedback from the front tyre.

The bike’s pegs will touch down, eventually, which is great fun. But it goes round corners well. It’s a joy to steer, which it does quickly and precisely. The ride is more sophisticated than any previous Sportster and the brakes are so good too. It’s as if Harley has finally discovered how good modern brakes can be.

Accessories

The shopping list from Harley is wateringly attractive.

This one was spec’d brilliantly. The Screaming Eagle Super Tuner allows all sorts of variations and option. The high flow air filter is a must and will aid whatever state of tune you want.

Then there are those thunderous pipes. Words don’t often fail us. But take a listen to the video.

And if the Screaming Eagle accessories weren’t enough, our vendor is kindly including a garage turntable plus a H-D  branded back pack too. We’re also told that the the brand new original exhaust no plate assy will also come with the bike.

Summary

When H-D thought about the XL1200 Roadster they set out to make it the sportiest Harley Sportster 1200 yet – and succeeded.

Now add to that how good it looks. It rides, stops and handles even better and yet they’ve not managed to lose the traditional Harley experience that sets the American brand apart.

It’s good in the bends, has enough grunt out of them and the brakes work as they should. It reminds us of a kind of Harley version of the old Thruxton.

The whole experience makes you feel good, chugging along using the torque of the 1200 engine, and taking in the view. It’s one of those bikes that gets better and better, the more you ride it.

As an easy, jump on, ride, blast and have some very convenient affordable fun, it is hard to beat.

  • One owner
  • 1,868 miles
  • Terrific accessories
  • And it comes with a garage turntable
  • We nearly forget, it’s ice cool too

Does it get any better? Yes. It is priced to sell. Don’t miss it.

Vehicle Location: Ashburton, Devon TQ13– it’s the responsibility of the winning bidder to make collection / transportation arrangements directly with the vendor.

 Guide Prices?

We’re different. But you know that. And we’re always honest. In a sector where no two classics are same, how does anyone put a ‘guide’.

Well, everyone knows the broad value of classic, let’s all be honest. So we don’t need to tell you what you already know, do we.

The ‘market’ decides and the old cliché that ‘it’s are worth what someone wants to pay’ is no less true. So why kid everyone!

But, because we are different, if it really does matter to you, that’s fine, we want you to be happy. Just drop us a line at auction@evoke-classics.com and one of us will be delighted to ring you back and discuss, it’s what we do.

Tedious but it’s vital you read this, please.

We will always strive to offer the most descriptive and transparent auction listings available. However, we can’t claim to be perfect. Your own analysis is very important and we are here to help and also answer any and all queries you may have prior to purchase.

We offer and positively encourage bidders to view, or arrange inspections for each vehicle thoroughly prior to bidding.

If we do take a physical, as opposed to a remote, look at any of the vehicles on our platform, they are not those of a qualified vehicle inspector or other professional. Nor do they include a test drive unless expressly stated.

As with all vehicles of a certain age, localised paint repairs are common. This specifically applies with classics.

So, please, unless we state explicitly to the contrary, please assume that classic vehicles on our platform could have had remedial bodywork of any kind at some point in its life.

Two final comments on images and photos.

The vast majority are supplied by vendors. Camera technology has and continues to improve significantly, but please note and understand that image and sound quality does vary. If you would like vendors to provide more images please ask us and we will contact the vendor for you.

If you are at all unsure, just ask us. It is what we are here for.

Finally, finally, finally. Please note that vehicles are sold as seen and a returns policy is not applicable. This is the norm for used items acquired at auction.
