Harley-Davidson 1450 SOFTAIL DEUCE FXSTD 2001

"There are enough !" This is what Harley has been thinking for some time. The Japanese are everywhere and other new builders are showing off. Even if the Japanese machines do not have the little American touch, their customs invade the market. Shadows, VN 1500, Wildstar … it’s overflowing.

In short, in Milwaukee, we get organized and we fight back. First step: a new engine. Thus was born the Twin Cam 88, an excellent powerful twin full of torque. Then, we do not fall asleep on our laurels. A year later, the Twin Cam B version appeared to equip the Softail. This very symbolic family of the American manufacturer not only sees the arrival of a new mill but also a new model: the Deuce.
"You are sure that everything is original ? " It is true that by discovering it, one can wonder. This machine seems to be going through the tuning box. For its FXSTD, H-d has not skimped on quality accessories: pointed indicators, wide triple tree, nice handlebars, solid rear wheel of 17", chrome tank plate (by the way, there are chrome everywhere). it slams !
The purists and even Harley regulars will be surprised by the 1450. Getting started, melody of typical bowls, and very contained vibrations. De-stress, "good vibrations" have not disappeared. They are simply filtered by a balancing pendulum. This does not detract from the performance of this engine. How pleasant it is to taste the flexibility and length of this twin. Power is not lacking while the big torque carries the machine without weakness. For the smoothness of transmission, Harley always uses the transmission by belt and also a new gearbox with the improved selection barrel..
Like all Softails, the frame is a deceptively stiff rear model, with shocks housed under the engine. These work much better and absorb small shocks with some efficiency; this is less true on large bumps. Braking is now entrusted to new 4-piston calipers, for the benefit of much more pleasant and efficient use..
