    1998 Harley-Davidson Road King 95th Anniversary Edition
    VIN: 1HD1FRR59WY612762

    In 1998 Harley-Davidson was celebrating 95 years of building the American motorcycle and came out with a special edition Road King to mark the occasion. Purchased as his personal motorcycle, Bruce Canepa decided to take this factory custom a step further. Well, maybe a few steps further:

    Starting at the front, the front fender was reshaped and lowered down to fit closer to the tire. The forks were plated. A Performance Machine caliper and disc was fitted, and a new 3.5 x 18 inch stainless spoked Sun wheel was installed with a 130/80R18 Pirelli tire.

    Moving aft, the HD 95th Anniversary fuel tank emblems were frenched into the tank. Fat handlebars were installed, with HD aftermarket mirrors. All the wires and fuel lines were relocated to hide them as much as possible. Stainless braided lines were fitted to the brake and fuel lines.

    The engine received an 88-inch upgrade along with new performance air cleaner, exhaust, and polished 12-point hardware. The transmission was changed from the stock 5-speed to a custom 6-speed. The floorboards were painted to match the rest of the bike.

    Now to the rear, a Corbin seat was custom made for the Road King with backrests for the driver and passenger making for effortless long distance cruising. The rear was lowered, and the sidebags were brought in as close to the bike as possible with custom made bracketry to create a seamless look between the fender, seat and bags. The rear wheel is a 4.25 x 18 inch stainless spoked Sun with a 140/70R18 Pirelli tire. Finishing off the rear is a custom-made license plate frame and bracket, as well as integrated turn signals made by Canepa Design hidden in the taillight.

    Finally the bike was painted a custom blended dark burgundy nonmetallic and subtly hand pinstriped. Every part of this bike has been sculpted to make for one of the most refined and classy Road Kings of its generation.

    The last of Bruce Canepa's personal motorcycles, this bike has only 2,573 original miles and is ready for many more miles, or to be kept as a one-of-a-kind Canepa Design custom show bike.
