If you have a Harley Softail or Roadking and still crave for that early look you shouldn’t think at buying and restoring a 1950’s cruiser, but consider transforming the model you already own into what it is called the Rucker Nostalgia.
It is actually a package that comes on the previously mentioned models and does a radical transformation.

On the open road or on the Boulevard, a Vandal would feel well at home, not waiting with the engine started in front of a Bank, as some would expect.
