Harley-Davidson’s 2010 model line-up of Fat Boy Special – a heavily revised Fat Boy with a lower and enhanced chassis components – a new Dyna Wide Glide custom and Electra Glide Ultra Limited tourer, also includes four bikes new to the CVO (Custom Vehicle Operations) range.
CVO bikes are essentially bikes lifted from H-D’s current model range and treated to a custom bling makeover with parts from Harley’s vast accessory range and topped off with unique paint schemes. The accessories can range from chromed wheel spacers to new mirrors to leather-trimmed luggage. Going one step further, the CVO department – now in its 11the year of factory custom specials – also fits big-bore engine capacity kits, heavy duty clutches and more from the factory’s own Screamin’ Eagle performance department.
The four 2010 CVO bikes available are:
*CVO Softail Convertible
*CVO Street Glide
*CVO Ultra Classic Electra Glide
*CVO Fat Bob
The Softail Convertible is described as a tourer-cruiser. The main CVO features are replacement polished Stinger wheels, modern fairing and screen, QD pillion seat and backrest, and 110cu-in engine (1802cc) giving up a claimed 110ftlb of torque. Detail changes are vast, but if you want a new custom-made leather seat, chromed coil cover and paint scheme of Inferno Orange, Crimson Velvet or Abyss Blue with varying graphics, this bike has it – and a lot more. Prices start at: £21,320
The half-faired Street Glide tourer gets similar upgrade treatment including higher spec strereo, enough chromed goodies to keep plating and polishing companies in work for a millennium or more. The 110cu-in (1802cc) lump should see you arriving at your destination a lot earlier than any sat-nav will tell you. All CVO bikes are of a limited production (3500 worldwide for the CVO Street Glide) first come, first served basis. Colours: Spiced Rum, Tequilla Sunrise and Candy Concord. Prices start at: £23,040
