Harley-Davidson Heritage

Harley-Davidson’s Heritage Classic is one of a handful of models that is, and always has been, built on the Softail platform. The faux hardtail frame dovetails nicely with old-school custom features to make this model a veritable rolling history lesson for America’s longest operating marque. Studded leather saddlebags and a large stock windshield turn this cruiser into an old-time bagger/tourbike, and power comes from whatever Big Twin engine is current for any given model year.

Harley puts the bling back in the Heritage Classic

After a revamp for the 2018 model year, Softail underpinnings are all radically different than the originals, but the overall classic look of the Heritage Classic remains largely unchanged for the requisite historical tie-in. Harley-Davidson put a new emphasis on the Softail lineup with plenty of performance-driven custom designs for the fiery-eyed pegdraggers out there, but for someone looking for an old-school cruiser and tour bike, the Heritage Classic is your Huckleberry.

More on the Harley-Davidson Heritage

The Heritage Classic rolled in 1986 and was built around the then-new Softail platform that first saw light of day in 1984. The Heritage Springer that differs from the Classic in a springer front end, ran from 1999 to 2003. The Classic saw continuous production through the Evolution and Twin Cam years, and made the jump to the new Softail chassis and its Milwaukee-Eight powerplant to make the Heritage one of the oldest models in its early 2020s lineup.

Where most Softails run with narrow front ends, the Heritage Classic sets itself apart with a fat-and-wide fork that’s made fatter yet by the classic chromed beercan skirts. A whisker-bar mounts a pair of pimp lights over the forward turn signals to lend the front end even more visual heft, and of course, the windshield gives it a finishing touch with some protection for the rider. Stock pillion pads and fold-up footpegs let you share the fun with a friend, but it’s the large concho-and-stud saddlebags that makes it a viable tourbike and good on grocery-getter missions.
