Harley-Davidson wll be celebrating its 110th year next year and it will be rolling out some cool bikes. Among the the motorcycles to be rolled out next year is the warmed-over HD Street Bob.

harley-davidsonThe 2013 Street Bob will be in a Vivid Black finish with a sticker price of $12,999. It will be the most affordable of the brand’s Big Twin offering for next year. What makes the Street Bob a very reasonable buy is its no frill-lls and stripped-down construction. It is a perfect platform if you want to customize the bike. Harley-Davidson has recognized this and also expanded its custom options . Harley gives consumer more choices when it comes to paint finishes, seats, wheels, foot controls, handle bars, and engine finishes that come in chrome or black.

For those who are interested to buy the Street Bob, customizing it using the Bike Builder on Harley-Davidson’s website may save you some money and a lot of time. For example, for riders who are at least six feet in height, you might find that the forward controls option will come better than the stock configuration which are mid-mounts. The mid-mounted controls are a bit confining for a big rider. You can pretty much setup everything to have drag bars and forward controls for about $360.

The designers at Harley-Davidson also implemented some style makeover:

  • Bar and Shield treatment for the round cover of the air cleaner

  • Blacked out cover of battery box, powertrain, and triple clamps

  • Side-mounted license plate on chopped rear fender

  • Rubber handle bar risers using a forged top clamp

New body paint options to include a two-tone option or custom colors from Harley’s Hard Candy options. Harley has expanded the options for these colors after the warm reception of the Hard Cand Big Red Flake finish of the Seventy-Two that was released this year.
